Private School Choice Programs-Auditor Information

Selecting an Auditor

The Audit Firm Listing (last updated April 2015) includes certified public accounting (CPA) firms who were completing Choice audits at that time, have attended the Department of Public Instruction’s auditor in-depth training and/or have attended the WICPA Continuing Education Training for Private School Choice Programs. Inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement of the firm by the Department of Public Instruction. Schools may engage any currently licensed CPA firm that has not been barred from the program if they meet the independence standards for the Private School Choice Program audits.

Once a school has identified what auditor they will use, the auditor and school must complete the Auditor Authorization form.

Auditor Access to the Online Application System (OAS)

In order for an auditor to gain access to the student information required for the audits, the auditor must complete an OAS Auditor Access Form that is signed by the partner on the Auditor Authorization form, and complete the OAS Auditor Access Training.
