The City Auditor’s Office, through City ordinance, adopted adherence to Government Auditing Standards (GAS) established by the U.S. Government Accountability Office. All performance audits, as defined by GAS, and are performed under these standards.
These standards require our office to obtain a peer review every three years to ensure audit quality and adherence to GAS. Qualified external reviewers independently conduct an assessment of our internal monitoring procedures plus evaluate audit knowledge and skills through staff interviews and sampling audit documentation.
The City Auditor’s Office has been in operation since 2011 and undergone two peer reviews. The results are presented below.
