Auditor Galloway announces audit of Salem License Office

Citizen input requested for the third of eight license office audits scheduled for 2016

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway has announced her office has started an audit of the Missouri Department of Revenue Contract License Office in Salem, located in Dent County.

The Department of Revenue is responsible for selecting agents to operate 177 contract license offices throughout the state. These offices process transactions related to driver licenses, vehicle titles and license plates. In 2009 state law was amended to allow the Missouri State Auditor's Office to audit contract license offices.

This is the first audit for the Salem License Office, which is one of eight license offices that will undergo an audit this year. Audits of license offices in Marshall and Warrensburg were announced last week and are currently underway. Additional audits will be announced in the coming months. Last year, Auditor Galloway issued audit reports for five contract license offices located in the cities of Carthage, Kirksville, Monroe City, St. Charles and Warrenton.

Individuals who would like to provide information for consideration during the audit may contact the State Auditor's Office at moaudit@auditor.mo.gov or 800-347-8597.
