E-Verify Compliance During FY 2022-23, Audit No. 2402

View Highlights

View Report

The City Auditor’s Office has periodically audited selected City contractors’ compliance with the required use of the federal E-Verify system. The state law provides that every Arizona government entity that enters into a service contract is required to conduct random verifications to ensure its contractors and their subcontractors comply with required use of the E-Verify employment eligibility program.

The audit found that the selected City contractors were using the E-Verify program for their workers but need to ensure that their subcontractors are also in compliance. Two of the three subcontractors had not used E-Verify for the employees we reviewed. One was not enrolled in the program when the selected employee was hired, and the other reported that their prior payroll processes did not E-Verify.
