DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad has launched a Web site to help in his search for a new state auditor.

The site was announced Friday, and is at http://governor.iowa.gov/auditorsearch Those interested in the job can submit resumes and others can offer recommendations.

State Auditor David Vaudt announced Thursday he is resigning his elected position to become chairman of a national nonprofit accounting board. Under state law, Branstad will appoint a replacement to serve until Vaudt's term expires. An election for a new state auditor will be held in November 2014.

On the Web site, Branstad says he wants a replacement that will follow budgeting principles like avoiding using one-time funds for ongoing expenses and making sure revenue and expenses match up in the fiscal year.
