About Metro › Office of the Auditor
The Metro Auditor, elected region-wide, is responsible for conducting performance audits and oversight of Metro's annual financial statements.
The Auditor's Office was the recipient of the Gold Knighton Award for best performance audit in the small shop category. The winning audit report was on Metro's Natural Areas Maintenance, published in 2012.
The Office of the Auditor was created as part of the home-rule charter approved by voters in 1992. The Metro Auditor operates independently of the Metro Council and is a link between the public and Metro. It is in the public’s interest to have Metro government operate the best it can to ensure that public resources are used wisely.
It is in Metro’s interest to be fully accountable to the public and achieve the public’s trust and support. We are committed to serving the interests of the public by providing constructive investigations of Metro services.
