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.
