Scott Oling

"Most people don't grow up saying 'I want to be an accountant.' I guess that means I am not most people. On my office wall, there is a picture of me at age two sitting on my grandfather's lap, while he taught me about accounting and how to use his adding machine. What the photo didn't capture was his insistence on teaching me the values of both hard work and honesty, qualities that I strive to demonstrate to my clients every day."

Scott Oling works primarily within the Public Sector team. He has more than 35 years of experience specializing in government audit engagements, including those of cities, towns, villages, counties and school districts.

Scott is responsible for overseeing the entire audit process from start to finish and is in contact with his clients on a year-round basis. He provides expert advice to governmental officials and is skilled in guiding them through their compliance with changes resulting from pronouncements issued by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. Throughout his career, Scott has participated in numerous budget-consulting activities at the city and county levels, including review, analysis and evaluation of executive branch budget proposals.

As an active member of the Government Finance Officers Association’s (“GFOA”) Special Review Committee, Scott oversees the submission process for clients who voluntarily choose to prepare a Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (“ACFR”). Many clients receive this prestigious award annually, certifying that they have achieved “Excellence in Financial Reporting.”
