The new Washington State Auditor’s website has been thoroughly redesigned and rebuilt to be more attractive, effective and interactive, to better serve the governments we audit, our colleagues in the executive and legislative branches, and the taxpayers of Washington.
Please continue to use http://www.sao.wa.gov. But all other links on the site have changed. You should find all the information you need under the various tabs for Local Government (online filing, BARS Manual etc.), State Government (Performance Audit, etc.), Investigations (Citizen Hotline, Fraud and Whistleblower programs), About Us (career opportunities, mission and goal statements, etc.), andGeneral Information & Resources (public records requests, media resources, contracting opportunities).
We have worked hard to make the transition to the new format and functionality as easy and intuitive as possible, but change can always be challenging. We are ready to help you find your way around as you become familiar with the new navigation. If you need help, contact Webmaster@sao.wa.gov.
