Welcome to the home page of Iowa's Office of Auditor of State

Mary Mosiman

We serve the citizens of Iowa as the "Taxpayers Watchdog." To help ensure that government is open and accountable to its citizens, we provide independent, accurate, and timely audits of the financial operations of Iowa's state and local governments. We review government activities to help ensure they are conducted in an effective, efficient and legal manner. In addition, we work with government officials, CPA firms conducting government audits, and individual citizens as they strive to obtain information, answer questions, and resolve issues, all with the objective of making government work better for its citizens.

The information on our website describes our office and its duties, provides accounting and technical updates, and lets you know "what's happening" in the Auditor's Office. The Auditor of State website allows you to view reports, download information, link to related sites, and e-mail questions or comments to our office.

We hope you find our website helpful and informative.
