Todd Jones began his career in 1985 with the North Carolina Department of Transportation after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. He has worked in the Department as Audit Manager of the Consultant, Rail, Utility and Turnpike Branch, which has allowed him to gain knowledge in a variety of areas, including expertise with Private Engineering Firms.

He led various task forces and committees as a member of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Internal and External Audit Subcommittee. His involvement includes being head of the Risk Matrix and Team Audit task forces and member of the National Compensation Matrix task force. He served on the committee that developed the original AASHTO Audit Guide and continues to serve on the committee developing additional audit guidance for states.

One of his finest accomplishments was forming the Southeast Audit Conference in 1996 to promote consistency among the State DOTs, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Private Engineering Firms and CPAs. He is proud this conference continues on an annual basis.
