In accordance with the Pennsylvania First Class Township Code, an audit of all Township funds and accounting procedures is performed each year to ascertain the validity and reliability of information and to provide an assessment of the accounting system's internal controls, accounting procedures, and operational practices. The primary goal of the audit is to express the Township's financial position and provide an opinion regarding the Township organization and the financial system based work done on a test basis.
Auditing is a vital part of accounting and an important tool that is required by law to insure transparency and objective analysis for the general public. In addition, the Township complies with prevailing federal, state, and local statutes as well as regulations and generally accepted accounting principles as promulgated by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
