Municipal Audit and Local Government Resources
The Audits Division administers Municipal Audit Law to ensure local governments comply. Municipal Audit Law (Oregon Revised Statutes 297.405 to 297.555 and 297.990) requires Oregon’s local governments to submit annual financial reports to the Secretary of State. In the interest of transparency and accountability, we assist with understanding and complying with the law and making information available to the public.
Oregon municipalities include about 1,800 cities, counties, school districts and special districts
