Auditor General: audit backlog cleared in 3 months
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -
A backlog of over a thousand audits has been cleared from the state auditor general's office.
Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said Thursday that the backlog was cleared just three months after he took office
"We released more than 1,500 audits in the past 90 days," DePasquale said. "I don't know if it is up there with Cal Ripken's consecutive game streak, but clearing the backlog in 90 days is an amazing accomplishment."
DePasquale said the backlog was a natural part of the change in leadership.
His department produces about 4,000 audit reports per year for organizations statewide including public and charter schools, volunteer firefighter's relief associations, county row offices, etc.
