As required by the city charter, we adhere to very rigorous and demanding professional auditing requirements described in Government Auditing Standards, or more commonly referred to as GAGAS or the Yellow Book. These standards include requirements for planning our work, ensuring that our staff is properly trained and supervised, determining our rationale for the objectives, scope and methodology, selecting the criteria we use to evaluate the audit subject, and ensuring that our evidence is sufficient, relevant, and competent.
Government Auditing Standards require that our office undergo an external peer review once every three years to determine if our office's internal quality control system was suitably designed and operating effectively. The results of our past peer reviews are located below.
