OLA participates in the National State Auditors Association External Peer Review Program. Under the program, experienced auditors from other member offices conduct an onsite review once every three years to determine whether OLA’s system of quality control is suitably designed in conformance with professional standards and is operating effectively. A successful peer review result provides the citizens of Maryland with confidence regarding OLA’s audit work quality.
OLA’s most recent peer review was conducted in May 2021 and covered audit reports issued from April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021. The review team gave a peer review rating of pass in its report, which is the highest level of assurance that can be given under the program.
