The Oklahoma Office of the State Auditor and Inspector (SAI) is seeking applicants with high integrity, strong work ethic, and a commitment to its Mission to work out of our regional office in Duncan.

SAI’s Mission
Our Mission is to independently serve taxpayers and public officials by conducting audits that provide meaningful, reliable results and promote efficiency, stewardship, and transparency in government. State Auditor Cindy Byrd believes passionately that SAI is where both elected officials and citizens turn for unbiased information on the effectiveness and efficiency of state and local governments. To learn more about what we do, visit our Who We Are link under the Employment Opportunities section on our webpage.

SAI’s Culture
Our Culture is based on mutual respect and teamwork.  Our regional offices allow direct access to leadership, mentors and co-problem solvers.  We seek to promote a spirit of public service, professionalism, and camaraderie.

SAI’s Personal Development Opportunities
We value the knowledge and insights you’ve already gained—and we provide you with the opportunities to go further.  We are committed to our team’s continued development through training both on the job and in the classroom.  Certified Professional Education courses are provided on a routine basis and we offer educational leave if you’re interested in pursuing professional audit certifications.  If you have proactive leadership skills and increase audit experience SAI always has an opportunity to move up.

SAI’s Unique Rewards and Benefits
Our compensation package includes competitive salary. Entry-level salaries range from $40,000 to $50,000 with consideration given for a candidate’s education and audit experience.  Full-time employees are eligible for our benefits package which includes enrollment in the state’s Defined Contribution Plan, and a 457 Plan, each liberally matched by the state.  In addition, we offer generous benefit allowances, longevity bonuses, per diem for overnight travel, and more.  Visit our Employee Benefits link under the Employment Opportunities section on our webpage.

SAI’s Flexibility
We appreciate that sometimes the most valuable benefits are those that are least tangible, and we offer a wide range of non-financial advantages such as flexible work hours, ample paid vacation and sick leave, and eleven annual state holidays.  Most of our team members work four, ten-hour days, resulting in three-day weekends to enjoy with friends or family.  Transportation is either provided or reimbursed for out-of-town travel. Fuel and hotel expenses are covered.

Who We’re Looking to Hire
As a team member you will utilize your accounting and auditing skills to audit county governments and political entities. Extensive in-state travel may be required for many audits; therefore, flexibility with travel and overnight arrangements is essential for this position. A bachelor’s degree in accounting or other business-related field, or a minimum of two years’ experience in an accounting and/or audit environment is necessary.  We are interested in candidates who have knowledge of generally accepted accounting principles, generally accepted auditing standards, and Government Auditing Standards and who possess strong verbal and written communication skills, the ability and desire to work as part of a team, and proficiency in Excel and Word.
