County to Implement Hybrid Dual Offices for Internal Audits
According to a presentation at the County Board - County Manager FY 16 Budget Work Session on April 7th, the County will implement a hybrid dual office approach to internal audits beginning in July. The County Auditor will report to the County Board. The County Auditor's Office will be overseen by an Audit Committee composed of two County Board Members, the County Manager, Department of Management and Finance Director, and one member of the Fiscal Affairs Advisory Commission. The County Auditor will be focused on program and operational audits.
An Internal Audit Office will be established within the Department of Management and Finance and would be focused on internal control and core financial audits. The Staff would report to the DMF Director.
Both offices would have an annual workplan and would publish reports in line with the Institute of Internal Auditors best practice guidelines.
