Know What Gets Audited

The responsibility of Internal Audit is to assess County functions and controls to assist management in serving the citizens in an efficient manner. Emphasis is on government characterized by integrity, maintaining credibility, and for accountability and responsibility in the handling of the public’s property and money.

Internal Audit examines and evaluates the adequacy and effectiveness of internal controls and the quality of performance in carrying out assigned responsibilities.

We have identified numerous potential audits in all of the County’s Agencies. These include, but are not limited to, audits of processes regarding:

  • money receipts,
  • expenditures,
  • security and safeguarding of County assets
  • compliance with certain laws and regulations,
  • access, security and general information technology controls for County systems,
  • protection of sensitive information

    We cannot audit everything each year. As such, to develop our Annual Audit Plan, we annually survey County Agencies to help identify our Audits and focus our activities. We also consider factors such as the time since last audit, changes in operations or systems, and relative significance and impact to the County as a whole.

    A listing of issued Audit Reports is available at Report Index.
