 About Us

The Berkeley City Auditor is an elected official whose independence is established by Section 61 of the Berkeley City Charter. Our office independently assesses City funded programs, services, and operations in order to evaluate compliance with local laws and regulations, whether objectives are achieved, and whether services are provided efficiently, effectively, and equitably.

The City of Berkeley Auditor’s office is divided into two divisions, performance audit and payroll audit. The performance audit division focuses on assessing City activities and making recommendations to the City Council and City Manager on how to improve program performance.

The payroll audit division examines and monitors the City payroll system. Independent review of the City payroll system helps prevent fraud, incorrect payments, and management override of controls.
