The State Comptroller is New York State’s chief fiscal officer, responsible for governmental and financial oversight of state agencies, public authorities, local governments and school districts. As an Auditor of Municipal Affairs or State Program Examiner (Fiscal) with the Comptroller’s Office, there are multiple opportunities to help make government operations more efficient and effective.
