Welcome to the Office of the State Auditor (OSA)
The Office of the State Auditor's primary responsibility is to audit the financial statements of the State of Maine and expenditures of federal programs. We conduct our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform our audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
You can help improve efficiency and eliminate waste in State government by reporting incidents of suspected fraud, waste, inefficiency or abuse to me, the Maine State Auditor. Please give me the important details. I have developed a web-based form for your use. Submit it online anytime; print and mail or fax it; or call us, M-F, 8 to 4. Maine law allows us to keep your identity confidential.
