To provide the District with internal audits and advisories that help improve and strengthen its financial and operational practices that support the attainment of the District’s core mission.


Internal Audit’s Goals & Objectives

Internal Audit Department’s goal is to help the District improve its internal controls, and operational efficiency and effectiveness needed to ensure excellent delivery of services to students, regulatory stakeholders, and District Staff.

Internal Audit’s objective is to provide the District with best business practices and internal control advisories to help the District attain the following objectives:

  1. Prudent use of scarce district resources
  2. Effective & efficient operations using best business practices
  3. Information and business systems with effective internal controls
  4. Accurate financial and operational records for management decision-making purposes and external reporting
  5. Safeguarding of district assets against potential loss, waste, and fraud
  6. Compliance with Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO ) internal control standards and Federal Uniform Guidance in all District business operations


Internal Audit’s Strategic Focus

In summary, the Internal Audit’s strategic focus is on helping the District improve its operational performance through improvement of its Accountability, Control, Transparency, and Efficiency (ACTE) in all business processes and functions. Our audit activities and advisories are designed to strengthen and promote the use of best business practices within a continuous improvement framework.  The Federal government has recently codified its demands for even more regulatory compliance with good business practices and internal control standards by its recent issuance of the Uniform Guidance and Green Book publications.  Annual auditors are now required to more closely scrutinize the District’s system of internal control, as well as conformity with procurement and other business best practices.

District Finance Department personnel and the Internal Audit have been providing training in all these areas, including assisting District oversight departments to help ensure compliance with all the above mentioned areas.
