DiNapoli Appoints Tina Kim Deputy for State Government Accountability

    State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli announced today that he has appointed Tina Kim as deputy comptroller for state government accountability. Most recently, Kim served as deputy comptroller for audit for the New York City Comptroller’s office. She will begin her new position in early January.

    “New York state agencies and public authorities annually spend tens of billions of taxpayer dollars. Having someone of Tina’s impressive auditing background to oversee these entities is critical and will help to ensure public resources are being used appropriately,” DiNapoli said. “I am happy to welcome Tina back to our office and I am confident that she will be a great asset to our team.”

    From 2001 to 2006, Kim was a senior accounts auditor and forensic auditor at the Office of the State Comptroller.

    In her new position, she will be responsible for overseeing the division that conducts audits of state agencies and public authorities. In 2013, the Comptroller’s office released 148 audits of state entities with more than $200 million in savings, questionable transactions and cost recoveries. The division is also charged with examining private special education contracts in New York state, in which recent audits have revealed a pattern of unsupported expenses and other abuses.

    Earlier in her career, Kim served as director of the New York State Department of Transportation’s Audit and Civil Rights Division as well as the leader of the New York State Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Cabinet’s Internal Control and Fraud Prevention Working Group. Prior to joining the Department of Transportation, she was the deputy inspector general for audit with the Office of the State Inspector General.

    Kim is a member of the Institute of Internal Auditor’s Public Sector Committee and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Government Organization Audit Committee Task Force. She also chairs the AICPA’s Government Performance and Accountability Committee.

    Kim has a master’s degree in Accounting and Information Technology and a bachelor’s degree in Economics. She is the co-author of the Audit Committee Toolkit: Government Organizations, as well as numerous articles and other publications on auditing and fraud-related topics.

    Her salary is $150,000.
