The office of the State Auditor has existed since Wyoming's territorial days, and has been a constitutional position since Wyoming's statehood. One of the five elected officials for the state of Wyoming, the State Auditor serves as the chief comptroller and payroll officer. The Auditor protects public money by ensuring that it is properly accounted for in the most efficient and cost effective means at all times. Promoting transparency and financial accountability are the Auditor's top priorities.

The State Auditor maintains Wyoming’s uniform computer accounting system or WOLFS (Wyoming Online Financial System). WOLFS provides agencies the means to process all payments made by the state and assists agencies in accounting for public money. The system also processes paychecks for State employees each month, including patient and inmate workers in the State’s institutions, legislators, judges, board members and members of the Wyoming National Guard.

The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report of the State of Wyoming (CAFR) is produced by the Auditor’s office annually. This report illustrates the state’s financial condition for the public and the legislature. For seventeen years, Wyoming’s CAFR has been recognized by the Government Finance Officers Association for its excellence in financial reporting.

The Auditor serves alongside the Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer and Superintendent of Public Instruction on the State Loan and Investment Board, the Board of Land Commissioners, and the State Building Commission. These boards deal with matters as diverse and vital as management of state lands, policy direction of the investment of state permanent funds, and oversight of state buildings.
