Internal Audit News and Events
Professional standards for conducting audits in government have been promulgated by the comptroller general of the United States and published in Government Auditing Standards. One requirement of Government Auditing Standards is that audit organizations receive an external quality control review (peer review) at least once every three years. The objective of a peer review is to determine whether an audit organization’s internal quality control system is in place and operating effectively, and to provide assurance that established policies and procedures and applicable auditing standards are being followed.
The City of Tampa's Internal Audit Department received its 7th consecutive unqualified opinion from the Association of Local Government Auditor's peer review team. The auditors determined that the Department was in compliance with Government Auditing Standards during the period October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2016.
