The Audit Committee serves as the Board’s liaison with the Office of Auditor General by: 1) reviewing the annual audit plan prepared by the Office of Auditor General and submitting its recommendation to the School Board for approval; 2) mediating the auditors’ relationship with management; 3) reviewing audit reports and management responses, and reporting to the Board monthly; 4) following up on the implementation of internal audit recommendations; 5) monitoring progress against the approved annual audit plan; 6) acting as a representative for School Board member requests for ad hoc reviews; 7) periodically reviewing audit-related policies for approval by the Board; and 8) assisting the Board with the evaluation of the auditor general in accordance with Human Resources guidelines, policies, and regulations.

The School Board is the final approval authority on the audit plan, the audit budget, and the implementation of any significant recommendations.
