RI Director of Administration Announces New Bureau of Audits Chief
Saturday, March 23, 2013
“I am very pleased that Dorothy Pascale has accepted the position as the Bureau of Audits Chief," said Licht. "The Department is committed to assisting Governor Chafee with his efforts to identify fraud and waste and to protect taxpayers’ dollars.” A six-member Review Team of government officials supported the search effort. Pascale will be the sixth Chief in the history of the Bureau of Audits.
In her previous role as Deputy Chief for the Bureau of Audits, Pascale concentrated on internal audits, operational and regulatory auditing, financial management and budgeting, fraud investigations, management advisory services, and business process evaluation and design. Pascale also previously served as the Chief Financial Officer and Assistant Director for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation and as Security Examiner for the Department of Business Regulations.
With over 18 years of experience as a Certified Public Accountant, there are high hopes for Pascale as she immediately begins her new position. “Dorothy is an accomplished auditor and will serve the State of Rhode Island well in this position. Her career is a testament to her commitment to protecting the best interests of Rhode Island’s taxpayers, said Peter Marino, Director of the Office of Management and Budget. "I certainly look forward to working with her in her new capacity.”
Pascale is up for the challenge of her new position, and stated, “I am very grateful for this opportunity to continue to serve the State of Rhode Island. I am committed to Governor Chafee’s vision to break down silos across state government, while simultaneously finding ways to streamline government, and improve government management practices to reduce the risk of waste, fraud and abuse."
