The City Auditor is requesting approval of the FY 2021 Annual Audit Plan.  City Council approval is required for the Annual Audit Plan.





Each year, the Office of the City Auditor prepares an Annual Audit Plan.  The Plan is based on input from City Council, Audit Committee, City Management, and a high-level risk assessment of City Departments.  Specific audits are identified considering the results of this input.  The audits are prioritized, and the Final Plan is developed based on resources available.


The Plan requires approval of the Audit Committee and City Council.  The Audit Committee considered and approved the Proposed Plan on August 18, 2020.


The FY2021 Audit Plan includes 30 performance and IT audits, 4 follow-up audits, and 2 attestation projects.  The Plan provides for audit coverage across multiple City Departments and Programs.  The Plan includes 6 audits related specifically to the COVID-19 response, and the City’s Recovery & Resiliency Plan. 


The detailed Plan is included in the Attachments.


With Approval of the Audit Committee, this Plan may be amended.
