Newcastle Receives Positive State Audit Report for 2017
Posted on 09/13/2018

An independent audit of the city’s 2017 finances and an accountability audit covering 2017 identified no findings or concerns. Representatives of the Washington State Auditor’s Office shared the results of the audit with members of the City Council at a Sept. 13 exit conference.

The state auditor’s office performs financial statement audits to determine if the local governments' financial statements are accurate and complete. An accountability audit assesses how local governments manage, use and safeguard public resources. It evaluates whether there is reasonable assurance the local government adheres to applicable state laws, regulations and its own policies and procedures. 

“The results of this independent audit stand as a testament to our staff’s dedication and a positive acknowledgement of our work to employ best practices in city operations. We are committed to transparency as we continue to operate a fiscally responsible government,” said Newcastle City Manager Rob Wyman.

Annual independent audits performed by the Washington State Auditor’s Office provide essential accountability and transparency for city operations. This information is valuable to management, the governing body and public stakeholders when assessing a government’s stewardship of public resources.
