In an effort to address public concerns and media reports about possible mismanagement and inappropriate hiring practices within the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office, the Salt Lake County Legislative Audit Committee engaged the Salt Lake County Auditor’s Office to conduct a performance audit of the
Recorder’s Office on April 5, 2016. We focused our audit efforts in four main areas of the Recorder’s Office operations: General Operations, Information Technology Operations, Human Resource Management, and Financial Management and Controls. While the performance
audit confirmed that the Recorder’s Office practices appear adequate, and that the office fulfills its statutory duties and obligations to the public, we have identified several findings and recommend actions to improve operations, ensure greater accountability, and better safeguard County assets.
