Reports by Type

Per Oakland’s the City Charter, the City Auditor performs certain audits or reviews every year to ensure the City is operating as planned. Translation is available by contacting our Office. Below is a list of the types of reports available:

Performance Audits

Performance Audits evaluate if the City is effectively and efficiently spending taxpayer dollars, complying with relevant rules and regulations, and whether programs are getting the results promised.

Legend: M = Mandated performance audit and O = Operational performance audit.

Recommendation Follow-Up

These follow-up reports assess the status of the implementation of performance audit recommendations, and document if corrective action has been taken.

Whistleblower Reports

Whistleblower Program (formerly Fraud Waste + Abuse) reports give a high-level overview of program achievements and investigations, including the number of reports and resolution of reported allegations.

Annual Reports

Annual Reports summarize audit activities performed by the Office of the City Auditor during a given year and how the City has embraced recommendations for improvement.

Peer Reviews

As a key quality control mechanism, the Office of the City Auditor receives a peer review at least once every three years. These audits are performed by a team of independent auditors from other governmental jurisdictions and determines whether or not an audit organization’s work meets government auditing standards.
