Kathleen A. Davies

Kathleen Davies worked as the Chief Administrative Auditor in the Delaware Auditor’s Office for more than six years.  During her 25+ years as a public servant, she has dedicated her work to government auditing and investigations. She has produced many reports addressing transparency, inappropriate destruction of records, wasteful use of tax dollars, and fraudulent practices.

Kathleen was asked to work in the Delaware Auditors Office because of her professional experience and integrity.  Over her tenure, Kathleen delivered numerous process improvement recommendations, recommendations for costs savings, and reports detailing misuse of taxpayer funds.

Kathleen has been a member of various national committees, boards, and workgroups that develop the government standards and procedures to improve government audits and investigations.

The following are a few examples of Kathleen’s work:

  • Uncovered the inappropriate use of school funds at the Delaware Military Academy, Academy of Dover, Family Foundation and Providence Creek Charter Schools.  This caused other Charter Schools to review and improve their process to avoid the same problems.
  • Identified performance audit recommendations of entitlement programs which ensured funds were spent on those needing the funds with the goal of implementing a one-stop process for administering the various entitlement programs.        
  • Discovered more than $194 thousand in personal transactions made by a former Treasurer of the Millville Volunteer Fire Company.

Kathleen obtained her Certified Public Accountant early in her career and went on to obtain credentials as a Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Government Audit Professional, and a Certified Fraud Examiner.

Kathleen and her husband Jerry live in Dover.  Jerry is retired from the Air Force and is President of AFGE Union Local 1709.  They have three children and four grandchildren.
