Special Projects

Special Projects are special request audits, reviews, or other engagements. The audits include internal control reviews, legal compliance and financial related audits, and other investigations, often referred to the Office by citizens, of potential waste, fraud and abuse in government organizations.  Special projects are not announced by the Office of the Utah State Auditor while they are in process, but the Office may confirm it has committed to perform a special project audit when asked to confirm already public information.
