Contact: Kris Sikes,; 706.542.2857

The Institute of Government has published the 2017 edition of Compliance Auditing in Georgia Counties and Municipalities, the only guide written especially to help those responsible for conducting a specific local government audit. Updated annually, the new edition is current through 2016 legislative changes and is available for free download thanks to the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts. A legal summary of finance-related provisions in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated that affect cities and counties is followed by a comprehensive compliance checklist of questions. Also included are listings of required audit reports and relevant organizations.

Compliance Auditing is available as a download, presented in PDF format.
