The Clerk and Comptroller of Pinellas County, Florida, an elected official, serves as the ex officio County auditor per constitutional and statutory provisions. The Clerk and Comptroller established the Division of Inspector General to fulfill the audit and investigative responsibilities. The audit and investigative functions serve as an important check and balance of agencies funded by the Clerk and Comptroller and the Board of County Commissioners departments under the County Administrator. To provide for the highest degree of independence, Division staff report to the Director (Inspector General/Chief Audit Executive) who reports functionally and administratively to the Clerk and Comptroller who is independent of the Board of County Commissioners.
