Thursday, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall (R) received a perfect audit report from State Auditor Jim Zeigler (R).
“There were 955 items of state property under the care of A.G. Steve Marshall,” said State Auditor Jim Zeigler (R). “All were present and accounted for. That is $2,113,157.43 worth of state property – all in place.”
Zeigler presented a Certificate of Perfect Audit to Marshall Thursday, along with AG Property Manager Angelica Richardson and AG Administrative Head Michael Bridges.
Attorney General Steve Marshall said on Twitter, “Pleased to receive a personal recognition by @jimzeigler today for a perfect state property audit of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office. Great work by our administrative staff in keeping track of all our equipment!”
The State Auditor inventories state property valued at $500 per item or greater. He audits 176 state agencies every two years with total property valued at $1.1 billion.
Typical items are computers, vehicles, and machinery. The auditor’s office affixes a unique bar code to each item so they can be scanned for inventory.
Steve Marshall was a longtime district attorney in Marshall County. He was appointed Alabama Attorney General by then Governor Robert Bentley (R) after Bentley appointed AG Luther Strange (R) to the U.S. Senate. Marshall is seeking his own term as AG in the November 6 general election. Marshall faces Joseph Siegelman (D).
Jim Zeigler was elected state Auditor in 2014 and is running for re-election on November 6. Zeigler faces a rematch with Miranda Karrine Joseph (D).
