Internal Audit Quality Assurance and Improvement Program

The City Auditor’s Office has established policies and procedures to help ensure that our internal audit function and audit work is conducted in compliance with the Institute of Internal Auditors Professional Practices Framework (the "red book") and Government Auditing Standards published by the United States Government Accountability Office (the “yellow book”).As applicable we also comply with ISACA IT Audit Framework, AICPA Generally Accepted Auditing Standards, ACFE Fraud Examiners Manual, and other professional guidance.  

As required by yellow book and red book standards, the City Auditor’s Office is subject to a review by external audit professionals once every three years to assess the Office’s compliance with these standards. This process results in the issuance of a Peer Review Report  and a Certificate of Compliance  to the City Commission.
