Find out where SAO's money comes from and where it goes

Aug 2, 2019

While talking with community members in Kitsap County recently, State Auditor Pat McCarthy was asked, “Where does the State Auditor's Office money come from, and where does it go?”

It's a great question, and Pat said we should make it easier for anyone in Washington to find the answer. So here it is, a simple explanation of our $47.1 million budget for 2018. Because transparency is a core value for SAO, we also post online the results of audits our Office receives and our Annual Report on what we do.
