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 OSA has a reputation for excellence and is an ideal place for you to begin a challenging and rewarding career in public service. We offer you a chance to use your skills to the fullest and enjoy the excitement of working with a variety of competent, highly motivated professionals.

The OSA's Fraud Hotline only has jurisdiction over concerns/allegations about fraud committed by current or former employees of state agencies or individuals acting under a contract with a state agency. If your specific concern/allegation falls outside the scope of this authority, the following table lists some other state agency reporting resources available to you.

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

Do you have a question that isn't on the list? Please contact us and we will work to get you the answer!
