From January to June of this year, San Diego's City Auditor identified $20.2 million in potential savings.

According to a September 2 report from the City Auditor's office, the six-months worth of potential savings is the largest amount since the office was established in 2008.

"Since the establishment of our Office in July 2008, we have identified a cumulative $33.6 million in potential savings, which equals to $6 in potential savings for every $1 in audit costs," reads the report.

The biggest cash-savings during the six-months came in April when the office conducted a "performance audit" into the City's Emergency Medical Services. That audit identified $10.9 million in potential savings.

During Fiscal Year 2011, 89 percent of the recommendations found in the audits were implemented, saving the city more than $20 million by the auditor's calculations.

33.6 million Potential savings, what are the actual savings? Typically audit findings are reduced before the actual amounts are agreed to. I really hate this new Captcha thing!
