State Auditor Works to Clear County Audit Backlog (Jul 25, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — When Oklahoma's State Auditor Gary Jones took office this year, he found a backlog of county audits that stretched back to 2005.

Jones told The Oklahoman that he has made headway, performing four of the six county audits that hadn't been done since 2005 and 10 of the 16 that hadn't been conducted since 2006.

An important purpose of the audits is to root out fraud or corruption, but Jones says that in many cases the officials in power for the time in question have already left office.

Jones, who was elected in November, says he's restructured the office to help speed up the process.
