Now 30 years of clean state audits for Sno-Isle Libraries

The streak is alive.

Sno-Isle Libraries recently received clean audit reports from the Washington State Auditor’s Office. The audits extend the library district’s record of state audits with no findings to 30 years in a row.

“We take seriously the responsibility of being accountable for the public funds entrusted to Sno-Isle Libraries,” Executive Director Jonalyn Woolf-Ivory said. “I want to note the leadership of Gary Sitzman, our administrative services director. Results like this show a commitment throughout the organization.”

The Auditor’s Office issued two reports, an accountability audit for the period Jan. 1, 2014- Dec. 31, 2015 and a financial statements audit for the period Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2015.

Accountability audits focus on internal controls that ensure compliance and safeguarding of public resources. Financial statements audits look at the processes in place that allow the library district to accurately monitor finances.

“We are committed to this high level of accountability for the public’s resources,” Sitzman said. “The current audit results and 30-year milestone reflect the continued efforts of dedicated staff focused on serving the public.”
