The Division of Internal Audit is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve the organization's operations. It helps the organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.
To meet the organization's objectives, the Division’s audit staff will help to provide reasonable assurances of accountability by maintaining independence as part of the county’s oversight authority, and by conducting countywide risk assessments, various types of audits and compliance reviews, special request reviews of emerging issues, and various types of consulting services such as workshops and trainings on efficiencies around processes, internal controls, and analysis of operations or functions.
The Board of Supervisors approved and adopted the Internal Audit Charter that establishes the responsibilities, reporting lines, and protocols of the Internal Audit Division. The charter also delineates the reporting lines of the Division of Internal Audit, the roles and approval of the Financial Oversight Committee, and Audit Sub-Committee, and acceptance by the Internal Audit Manager.
