The Audit Committee provides input on the development of the County Auditor’s annual audit work plan. The Audit Committee is responsible for formally approving the annual audit work plan; and in the future, may consider the development of a multi-year plan. In general, primary areas of focus include:
- Performance audits of County programs and operations to ensure program effectiveness and efficiency;
- Areas of management or policy concern;
- Areas identified by Fiscal Affairs Advisory Commission (FAAC) as part of their annual budget review; additional suggestions may be provided by other commissions, advisory groups, community organizations, and citizens;
- Reviews that make recommendations for service delivery alternatives such as contracting out or partnerships.
The Audit Committee ensures that the County Board is updated on the status of any audits and performance reviews on a periodic basis and as may be requested by a Board member.
