Frequently Asked Questions

Are annual audits required for regional commissions?

The provisions of O.C.G.A. §50-8-38 require annual audit reports of regional commissions to be submitted to the DOAA.

When should the annual audits be submitted to the DOAA?

Annual audit reports should be submitted within 180 days after the close of the fiscal year of the regional commissions as required by the provisions of O.C.G.A. §50-8-38.
