The Auditor of State's office conducts audits of cities, villages, schools, universities, counties, fire districts, townships, cemeteries, libraries, state and county agencies, and commissions. The office must review the methods, accuracy and legality of the accounts, financial reports, records and files of all public entities. It is the responsibility of the Financial Audit Group to determine whether or not the entity has complied with the law, rules, ordinances and orders pertaining to the office. Each fiscal year, the Auditor of State’s office releases approximately 4,000 financial audits. A portion of the audits are conducted by Independent Public Accounting (IPA) firms. Ayersville is audited annually. To look at Ayersville's most recent audit, click the link below.

The collective effort enhances government transparency by providing real-time state financial and transactional data. Users can view online government spending, as well as how revenue is allocated.
