We are in receipt of your letter, dated August 11, 2012, in which you request that the Auditor General investigate the CPA firm of Harvey, Covington, and Thomas, LLC. The Auditor General is an Officer of the Florida Legislature and his primary responsibility is to conduct post-audits of State agencies and other governmental entities pursuant to Section 11.45, Florida Statutes.

[pwal id=”13933753″ description=””]CPAs and CPA firms are licensed by the Florida Board of Accountancy and complaints regarding licensees are handled through the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Certified Public Accounting.

Here is a link to information on filing complaints regarding CPAs or CPA firms.


Ms. Rosetti;

I really appreciate your quick response.

I brought this matter to your attention as it’s my understanding your office is responsible for the adequacy and review of local government audits. I offer the 2011 City of Lauderdale Lakes audit, performed by Harvey, Covington, and Thomas, is not compliant with GASB.

Therefore, I believe such a situation falls within your domain. Hence, my request for Tallahassee’s assistance.

On a tangential note, I have also filed a complaint against the auditing firm with the DBPR.
