Auditing

City Seal

The City Auditor provides independent, timely oversight of the City’s finances and operations and ensures the City’s programs are being executed legally, efficiently, and effectively. Serving as a barrier to potential fraud or misuse of City resources, the Office provides financial and other information to the City Council, City Manager, City departments, the investment community, federal, state and other levels of government and to the citizens of Cambridge. The Office also provides assistance to the City Council in its review of the proposed City Budget.
