The Multnomah County Auditor’s Office has opportunities for students seeking to fulfill college internship requirements. We have a range of possible projects, including working on already planned projects and may have some flexibility to tailor projects to match interests or provide opportunities to develop specific skills.
The Multnomah County Auditor’s Office conducts performance audits and special studies of county programs. Our mission is to ensure that county government is efficient, effective, equitable, transparent and fully accountable. Performance auditing is similar to program evaluation or management analysis, but with a strong accountability component.
County auditors use a range of skills including:
- Qualitative and quantitative evidence gathering
- Data analytics
- Financial, economic and statistical analysis
- Written and oral communication and presentation
A project at the Auditor’s Office would be perfect for students interested in or curious about a career in performance auditing, management analysis, or local government. This work provides a broad view of county operations, as well as the ability to focus on specific areas (like health, criminal justice, human services, contracting, budgeting, etc.)
Our upcoming projects include:
- Implementing, assessing and refining a new equity and inclusion tool for audits
- A review of county jail conditions
- An assessment of access to housing and homeless services
- An examination of adult care home services
- A report on the County’s financial condition
- Preparation for the 2020 census-based redistricting project
We would love to host students who have personal, professional and/or lived experience with communities typically underrepresented in government leadership, who bring a commitment to transparency, accountability, and working across difference; and who have a sincere interest in public service.
Internships include a stipend. If you are interested in this opportunity, or would like to learn more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503.988.3320.
