COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES
ASSESSOR'S OFFICE FORECAST REVIEW/AUDIT - AUDITOR CONTROLLER'S OFFICE


At the direction of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the County Auditor-Controller retained RSG to evaluate the process, methodology, and results of the Los Angeles County Assessor 2012-13 assessment roll forecasts.  The purpose of the review was to obtain an independent evaluation of the forecasts and the pertinent actions by the Los Angeles County Assessor’s office.  RSG prepared a report that described the methodology used by the Assessor’s Office and provided recommendations to improve this methodology to derive more accurate forecasts. RSG’s report was presented to the Board of Supervisors and the recommended methodology changes were directed as a matter of future policy.
