About the Auditor and Controller
Controlling and Maximizing the Financial Resources of the County of San Diego
Governed by the overriding principles of fiscal integrity, customer service, and continuous improvement, the Auditor and Controller has four primary responsibilities. First, in accordance with the County Charter and generally accepted accounting principles, the department maintains accounts for the financial transactions of all departments and of those agencies or special districts whose funds are kept in the County Treasury and provides reports necessary to manage the County operations. The department performs independent, objective, and cost-effective audit services. Also, the department furnishes customer focused financial decision-making support to the Board of Supervisors and the Chief Administrative Officer, and advances the goals and visions of the Board utilizing the General Management System and County's Strategic Plan. Finally, the department provides cost effective and efficient professional collections and accounts receivable management services to maximize recovery of monies due the County. We are the leading financial management resource of the County, and our long-term objective is to continue to broaden our role of controller into provider of value-added financial services.
