County to Implement Hybrid Dual Offices for Internal Audits

Hello,

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.

This County Board - County Manager FY 16 Budget Work Session appears on video on the County Board's Web site.

So, how Independent will the Independent Internal Auditor really be?

Looks to me like the Independent Internal Auditor reports to a committee.

County Board informally voted 4-1 to close the Artisphere.

I have to wonder if Jay Fisette will announce his retirement after this year's elections.

Video is actually an audio recording. Beats me why the CB doesn't video all CB Meetings.

First thing Internal Auditor who reports to the County Board must audit is the $600 million reserve fund that the County Manager established years ago as one of the NY Rating Agency requirements for retaining a AAA bond rating. How much are these financial institutions where Arlington's tax receipts are deposited earning from paying Arlington 1% and lending our tax dollars out at 100% in countries like Brazil?

So who, or whom, will receive the $2 million or so the County spends on the Artisphere?

What else can you expect from a County Treasurer's Office that's wasting $200,000, together with APS, this year on a Personal Property Tax Vehicle Design Festival?

Best Guess? Jay Fisette's good buds in several performing arts organizations.

Why should Walter and Mary even care? They have only about 45 hours left to promulgate, pontificate. and procrastinate during CB Meetings over the next 9 months.

I'd like to know where Walter's retirement Rancho DeLuxe is located - El Salvador or Costa Rica?

Economically, Arlington County is Dysfunction Junction thanks to AED, a bloated bureaucracy that couldn't turn the Artisphere around, much less attract real jobs to Arlington. What happens to Arlington when the Big RIF in the Pentagon happens? Guess by then the AED VIPs will all be retired to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

How many corporate welfare giveaway real estate deals will the CB have to agree to over the next 5 years to keep yearly residential real estate tax rate increases from infuriating homeowners?

Look at the piece of $#!+ corporate welfare deal the CB made to build a butt ugly 200,000 sq ft office building on the Wendy's site in Courthouse, last CB Meeting.

When 8.8 million square feet of office space in Arlington are vacant? Duh.

Jim H blew the Planning Commission and County Planning out of the water tonight at the PC meeting regarding their next generation of Smart Growth corporate welfare for the REITs.

Yeah, they were shocked. But what else is new? County's so-called 'Planning' is by non-residents for non-residents, and both view every Arlington neighborhood as another 'redevelopment opportunity'. Shilled by the County Board, Planning Division, Planning Commission, and "Community Leaders".

Audit the Arlington Police Department. Find out why they refuse to do traffic enforcement (stop signs).

It's boring writing traffic tickets, that's why.

Because if the police enforced traffic laws they would have to deal with situations like a Yupster Mommy driving 40 mph in a 20 mph school zone and talking on a cell phone with little Madison not strapped into a child seat.

Replace all stop signs with yield signs.
