The City Auditor's Office has established the following set of formal policies and procedures to help ensure that our audit work is conducted in compliance with Government Auditing Standards published by the Comptroller General of the United States.
The policies and procedures serve as a reference and guide for audit staff and help ensure that audit work is conducted in a consistent, fair and professional manner. Policies and procedures are not intended to be all-inclusive, particularly as it relates to auditing procedures. Each audit has its own objectives and, consequently, its own set of auditing procedures. In order to be an effective document, the policies and procedures manual must be consistent with actual Office practices. All staff members are encouraged to suggest ways to improve and update the policies and procedures.
