The Oklahoma State Auditor’s Office will conduct a federal audit of Rogers County for fiscal year 2017-2018.

State Audit Manager Kerri Carter said a federal audit is necessary because the county expended more than $750,000 in federal funds.

“We will be looking at not only your financial statements but your schedule of federal awards and your other supplementary information,” Carter said. “We will be making sure that you have internal controls in place to insure the accuracy and completeness of your financial statements and the schedule of federal awards, and those required supplementary schedules.”

The audit will also look to insure that the county is in compliance with all federal and state laws and regulations that would impact those financial statements and awards.

“This will be the first time that you all will have a federal audit under the OMB uniform guidance, and so you all will have some more requirements,” Carter said.

The county will be required to provide a corrective action plan for any current audit findings that are reportable and also provide the prior year’s audit and corrective action plan.

Any findings noted during the county’s last federal audit, conducted in 2014, will also have to provided with a corrective action plan and evidence that an attempt has been made to correct those issues. and what you all have down to your last federal audit, any findings that were noted in that audit, you’ll have to provide a corrective action plan and say what the status of that finding is, has it been corrected.

County Clerk Jeanne Heidlage and County Treasure Jason Carini were appointed as overseers of the audit.
