The Office of the City Auditor conducts performance audits and reviews of city departments, programs, and services. Performance audits provide the City Council, city management, and the public with independent and objective information regarding the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of city programs and activities. The office coordinates the annual citizen survey and issues the annual City of Palo Alto Service Efforts and Accomplishments report summarizing costs, workload, and performance results for city services with selected data for the last five years.

The office contracts with an independent certified public accountant for the city’s annual external financial audit. The office also conducts and coordinates revenue monitoring and reports quarterly to the council on the status of audit projects and annually on the status of open audit recommendations.
