The OSA's Local Government Audit Division tracks about 4,000 Colorado local governments for compliance with the Local Government Audit Law [Section 29-1-601, et seq., C.R.S.], which requires submission of an annual independent financial audit to the State Auditor.

Please contact us with any questions you have about the Local Government Audit Law or how the law's requirements may apply to your local government.

The OSA has established itself as a leader among its peers in other states and is an active contributor to the government auditing profession and accountability community through participation in organizations such as the National State Auditors Association (NSAA) and the National Legislative Program Evaluation Society (NLPES), which is a staff section of the National Conference of State Legislatures. The OSA continues to produce award-winning work, as recognized by NSAA, NLPES, and other organizations.

The State Auditor is a constitutionally established position within Colorado's Legislative Branch. The General Assembly appoints the State Auditor, without regard to political affiliation, to serve a 5-year term. The State Auditor must be a Certified Public Accountant licensed to practice in Colorado.

The OSA has a reputation for excellence and is an ideal place for you to begin a rewarding career in public service. We offer you a chance to use your skills to the fullest and enjoy working on complex projects that promote accountability and positive change in government for the people of Colorado.

The OSA has limited authority and can only help with allegations involving state employees or contractors who are potentially committing fraud against their employer (the State). The following table lists various resources for individuals looking for help with other concerns they may have.

Below are some common questions and answers about the audit process, the OSA, the Legislative Audit Committee, and other aspects of what we do.
