Research and Analysis

The Office of the City Auditor's Research and Analysis Division analyzes data and information relative to budgetary issues, engages in fiscal forecasting and planning, analyzes the City's past, current, and proposed revenues and expenditures, and prepares such other reports relating to budgetary and legislative policy concerns as directed by the City Council.  

For example, one of the City Council's objectives is to create a workforce that is more reflective of Sacramento residents.  As part of the City's ongoing diversity effort, the City Council has requested the City Auditor to audit the City's gender and ethnic diversity on multiple occasions.   To provide the City Council and the public with more transparent information, we created a dashboard that allows the user to analyze various factors related to diversity, such as ethnicity and gender.
