The office of the County Auditor is a statutory, appointed position charged with general oversight of the financial operations of the County.  The County Auditor is appointed to a two-year term of office by the District Judges of the County.  The County Auditor serves at the discretion of the Judges.  The District Judges have authority, with statutory limits, over the salaries of the County Auditor and assistant county auditors, as well as the budget for this office.  

The County Auditor’s duty is primarily to maintain the integrity of the financial administration of County government and oversee the financial record keeping for the County, while strictly enforcing the laws governing each office.  The Auditor has continuous access to all financial records and can review all of the County’s operations.

The County's financial administration is entrusted to the Auditor and the Commissioners’ Court by a dual control system of checks and balances.

Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program

The Government Finance Officers Association (GOFA) established the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program (CAFR Program) in 1945 to encourage and assist state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.  The goal of the program is not to assess the financial health of participating governments, but rather to ensure that users of their financial statements have the information they need to do so themselves. 

In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government unit must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized comprehensive annual financial report.  This report must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements.

A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only.  DeWitt County has received a Certificate of Achievement for the last 40 consecutive years.
