After the fieldwork is completed and our findings and
concerns have been reviewed with you, the audit staff will first
prepare a Draft Report. The draft report is transmitted to you for
your review and in order for you to prepare your response(s).
Responses typically include corrective action plans, the parties
responsible for the action, and the timeline to complete the
process. Once your response is received and we agree on the report
text, the report is ready to be finalized. The Final Report
summarizes key issues, the findings and recommendations, and
includes management’s verbatim response.
You will be given the
opportunity to review the final report before the distribution is
completed. The Final Report is delivered to you as well as to the
City Manager and Assistant City Managers.
