Staff are working in a cohesive manner to provide support, assistance, information and guidance to the local business community.

  • Internal Audit completed and published eight audit reports in FY20 and FY21 to date, including reviews of the following: procure-to-pay operations; warehouse inventory management in Alcohol Beverage Services; risk assessment of the County's information technology (IT) environment; purchasing card operations; IT change management; and IT patch management.
  • Working with Departments, Internal Audit has seen continued progress in closure of open recommendations from Office of the Inspector General, Office of Legislative Oversight, and Internal Audit reviews; with a closure rate of 90 percent.
