  • The Fiscal Integrity Act, passed by the 130th General Assembly and enacted on March 23, 2015, is intended to help deter accounting errors and fraud, raising the bar of accountability for fiscal officers in the state. Newly elected fiscal officers must complete six hours of initial courses before their term or within the first year. Additional requirements are detailed on the Fiscal Integrity Act page noted below. The Auditor of State’s office offers a variety of trainings, including the Local Government Officials Conference, the Village Officers Training, Certified Public Records, Cybersecurity and the Fraud Conference.
