Nassau comptroller seeks new members for fiscal oversight board


The Nassau comptroller’s office is seeking members of the public to volunteer to serve on an unpaid advisory board that provides fiscal oversight of the county’s finances.

The Independent Audit Advisory Committee, first created in 2003 by former county Comptroller Howard Weitzman, will review Nassau’s financial reporting systems. For example, the committee will review the results of an external audit of the county’s finances, conducted in 2017 by RSM, an accounting firm based in London, to determine if actions recommended in the report have been implemented.

“This committee acts as another set of eyes and ears, and its feedback will help us develop solutions to address systemic problems like poor fiscal controls or inefficient management practices,” said county Comptroller Jack Schnirman.
