Hello, WFOA 2022! The State Auditor’s Office is excited to be reconnecting with our partners in government accountability at the first in-person WFOA annual conference in three years. We’re bringing our ‘A’ (audit) game this year with four pre-conference trainings and 13 sessions. Our staff are presenting sessions on new BARS updates and lease accounting requirements, payroll and credit card internal controls, tips for fighting and reporting fraud, and much more.

Every year, we create a special edition of our Audit Connection newsletter for WFOA. In this issue, you’ll hear from State Auditor Pat McCarthy, and you’ll get access to a slew of SAO’s latest resources and news. Click on the image below to turn the pages of our interactive issue. Just in case you like a physical copy, the downloadable PDF version is printer-friendly (see the instructions on the last page of the PDF).
