The SAO supports innovation, teamwork, and cultural diversity - essential elements in a rapidly changing world.

The SAO's vision is to help government achieve expected results. In order to do this, we seek employees who possess initiative, creativity, and vision.

Because the SAO audits all aspects of state government, our auditors enjoy challenging and diverse work assignments. You may help analyze highway construction, the performance of a university's investments, or the system that transports prisoners. Every assignment is an opportunity to learn!
