Internal Audit

The mission of the Office of Internal Audit is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve the Urban County Government’s operations. It helps the local government accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.

Scope of Work

The scope of work of the Office of Internal Audit is to determine whether the Urban County Government’s procedures of risk management, internal control, and governance, as designed and represented by management, are adequate and functioning in a manner to ensure:

  • Risks are appropriately identified and managed.
  • Significant financial, managerial, and operating information is accurate, reliable and timely.
  • Employees’ actions are in compliance with policies, procedures, standards, and applicable laws and regulations.
  • Resources are acquired economically, used efficiently and adequately protected.
  • Programs, plans, and objectives are achieved.
  • Quality and continuous improvements are fostered in the Urban County Government’s control process.

Internal Audit Board

Ultimate supervision and oversight of the Office of Internal Audit rests with an Internal Audit Board. The Board is comprised of seven voting members, including four members from the community, two Urban County Council members, and the mayor or their designee. The CAO and council administrator are non-voting ex-officio members. This reporting structure promotes auditor independence.
