Iowa State Auditor

What are the Responsibilities of an Auditor?

An auditor's work will vary depending on the audit engagement. It can range from the simple audit of cash receipts and disbursements of a county recorder to a complex audit of the financial statements of a state university.

All work is performed in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards, established by the U.S. General Accounting Office, which includes generally accepted auditing standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The duties of an entry-level auditor are performed under the direction of an experienced, in-charge auditor and will be under the general supervision of a Manager.
