The report shall set forth a complete operating and financial statement covering its operations during the year. The Authority shall cause an audit of its books and accounts to be made at least once in each year by a certified public accountant and its cost shall be considered an expense of the Authority and a copy shall be filed with the State Treasurer. The provisions of 2 V.S.A. § 20(d) (expiration of required reports) shall not apply to the report to be made under this subsection.
(c) The Auditor of Accounts of the State and his or her authorized representatives may at any time examine the accounts and books of the Authority including its receipts, disbursements, contracts, funds, investments, and any other matters relating to its financial statements.
