We promote accountability, integrity, and clarity in Commonwealth business, fiscal, and administrative enterprises.
The Office of the Comptroller is the uniquely independent and apolitical overseer of more than $60 billion in governmental and other funding sources annually. In addition, the Comptroller oversees the Commonwealth’s expenditure and payroll management and major audit functions promoting security, transparency, accountability, and service delivery across all branches of state government. The powers and obligations of the Comptroller are generally dictated by M.G.L. c.7A.
We strive to be a model for good government and to protect public resources by mitigating the risk of fraud, waste, and abuse while promoting transparency. Our core values include: Teamwork, Communication, Excellence, Service and Trust.
