Annual Audit Plan
Selection of audit projects is one of the most important responsibilities of the Auditor General. Careful consideration is given to prioritizing audit areas so that audit resources are allocated efficiently and effectively. The Office of Auditor General requires the staff to prepare and submit an annual audit plan to the School Board for review and approval. The audit plan is normally submitted to the School Board at the beginning of the fiscal year. The School Board also approves mid-year changes to the approved plan. We solicit suggestions for audit topics from the School Board, administration, departmental management, and staff. We welcome your suggestions for audits. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 571-423-1320.
We developed a risk assessment model to target priority audit areas. The model compared various factors for each budgeted program or revenue source including proposed expenditures, estimated revenues, number of staff, audit requests, and the date and results of the last audit. The model scored each factor, weighed the factor for relative importance, and calculated a weighted score for each item. The items with the highest weighted scores were considered for inclusion in the annual audit plan.
Audit reports are available for eight years after the close of the audit. You can access the complete audit reports listing and audit reports for the current and past two years in BoardDocs. Contact us at email@example.com for copies of reports not available in BoardDocs.
External reviews are reviews initiated by the School Board; facilitated through the Office of Auditor General and conducted by outside vendors.
