A certified association receiving and disbursing funds, following the close of its fiscal year every two years, shall cause an audit of its books and accounts for the two-year period to be conducted by a certified public accountant, disclosing receipts, disbursements, expenditures, and other related information, and a copy of the auditor's report shall be forwarded to the board for inspection and review. The Department of Examiners of Public Accounts may audit, review, and investigate the receipts and disbursements of the funds in the same manner that those duties are performed for the examination and audits of agencies and departments of the state. Any examination or audit required by this section shall be open to public inspection. Within 90 days following the close of a certified association fiscal year, if it has received any funds from assessments levied and collected pursuant to this article, the association shall forward a copy of a financial statement to the state board showing the amount received and collected and the amount spent for each project and item. The statement shall be available for public inspection.
