City spends millions auditing city services

The City Services Auditor, a division of the Office of the City Controller, automatically receives under the City’s Charter “2/10ths of one percent of the City’s annual budget.” In fiscal year 2010-2011, that is about $11.3 million. The City Services Auditor comprises “51 full time equivalent staff including auditors, performance analysts, project managers and operations staff.”

For each year there is a work plan. For the fiscal year that began July 1, the City Services Auditor will be completing such work as construction projects, like San Francisco General Hospital Rebuild or the construction of the San Francisco Public Library branches.

This office also operates the Whistleblower Program and investigates the validity of complaints. It will examine accounting at city-operating parking garages, audit Muni’s performance, and more. For a full list and more details, read here.
