Office of the New York State Comptroller

Internal Audit

The Office of Internal Audit provides independent and objective appraisals of the operations of the Office of the State Comptroller to assist the Comptroller and his management team to fulfill their responsibilities and accomplish their goals and objectives. This includes the Comptroller’s responsibilities as chief fiscal officer for New York State and as sole trustee of the New York State and Local Retirement Systems, the second largest public pension fund in the United States.

Services provided by Internal Audit include assessing the effectiveness of internal control systems; the accuracy of financial reports; compliance with contracts, procedures, rules, laws and regulations; and/or the efficiency and effectiveness of operations. As part of the Investigations Division, Internal Audit also provides consulting services to management and special projects at the Comptroller’s request.

As an Internal Auditor, you will be part of the Comptroller's management team and will be relied upon as a source of useful information and practical recommendations. The Office conducts financial, compliance, management and operational audits as a means to that end.

The Office reports directly to the Comptroller and conducts all its audit engagements according to professional standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Institute of Internal Auditors and the United States Government Accounting Office.

The Office is located at the Rensselaer Technology Park in Troy. On occasion, travel is required to conduct reviews of the operations of external service providers, including investment advisor audits, real estate audits and mortgage audits of assets held by the Common Retirement Fund in major cities around the country.
