The City Commission Audit and Finance Committee (A&FC) reviews and monitors internal and external audit affairs and provides policy oversight and guidance to management regarding the financial affairs of the city. Committee responsibilities include:
- Audit: Oversight of the city’s internal controls, periodic review of the internal audit function, review of enterprise risk assessments and annual audit plans, and review of internal audit reports.
- Finance: Selection of the independent external financial statement auditors, review of the annual audit plans of both the internal and external auditors, review of the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR), management letters, interim financial statements and all other audit and finance-related matters.
The A&FC is comprised of two members, one of which is the Mayor-Commissioner. The committee meets on an as-needed basis, but not less than once every quarter. Recommendations of the committee are placed on the City Commission agenda for review and approval.
