About the Job

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is an expanding function in the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), mandated through Public Utilities Code Section 28840-28845. The OIG’s primary purpose is to examine BART’s operating practices to identify fraud, waste, and opportunities for efficiencies in its programs and operations by conducting audits and investigations relating to BART’s programs and operations. The Principal Investigative Auditor will report directly to the Deputy Inspector General.

Under general direction from the Deputy Inspector General, the Principal Investigative Auditor will conduct the most technically difficult and complex performance audits and investigations of fraud, waste, and abuse complaints in BART programs, functions, and activities; contribute to developing goals and objectives for audit and investigation activities; coordinate work with outside consultants who assist in conducting audits and investigations; assist in obtaining responses from BART management on their efforts to implement recommendations; may supervise professional staff; and perform related duties as assigned.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in exercising professional independent judgment; conducting a broad range of fraud, waste, and abuse investigations and performance audits that include complex analytical work and critical assessments of testimonial, documentary, and physical evidence; planning, conducting, and reporting on audits and investigations in accordance with recognized professional standards. The ideal candidate will also bring innovative ideas to the OIG to meet its goals for improving our own processes, educating BART stakeholders on our services, and communicating our work to the public. Likewise, the ideal candidate will be comfortable using modern techniques and technologies to achieve those goals.
