Auditing Standards and Professional Credentials

Established September 1978, Internal Audit provides an independent function to conduct performance audits, special projects and investigate reports of fraud, waste or abuse. Our quality control system to comply with government auditing standards is evaluated through Triennial Peer Reviews (PDF) by the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA).
