:: Types of Internal Audit Services

Audit Images Program Audits determine (1) the extent to which City Council-established desired results or benefits are being achieved; (2) the effectiveness of organizations, programs, activities, or functions; and (3) whether the audited department/division has complied with laws and regulations applicable to the program.

Audits that focus on efficiency issues typically evaluate the reasonableness of program costs relative to the results of services produced. Auditors may assess the relationship between staffing and other costs and measurable program benefits. Auditors may also (1) determine if a program has established appropriate goals and objectives; (2) review the adequacy of management's system for measuring success; (3) assess the extent to which desired levels of results are achieved; and (4) identify factors that inhibit satisfactory performance.

Audit reports make recommendations to management to correct inefficient practices and/or improve procedures to maximize resource utilization and productivity. The reports may also make recommendations to change management systems, City policies, and ordinances.
