Auditor of State Keith Faber has announced the most recent entities which have received the Auditor of State Award for their clean audit reports.

Two of those so named are in Richland County:

Mansfield Metropolitan Housing Authority
Ontario Local School District

The Auditor’s office presents the Auditor of State Award to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit. Less than eight percent of the entities we audit qualify for the Award.  Entities that receive the Award meet the following criteria of a “clean” audit report:

  • The entity must file financial reports with the Auditor of State’s office by the statutory due date, without extension, via the Hinkle System and in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles);
  • The audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weakness, significant deficiencies, Uniform Guidance (Single Audit) findings or questioned costs;
  • The entity’s management letter contains no comment related to:
    • Ethics referrals
    • Questioned costs less than the threshold per the Uniform Guidance
    • Lack of timely annual financial report submission
    • Bank reconciliation issues
    • Failure to obtain a timely Single Audit in accordance with Uniform Guidance
