Who audits the auditor?

Internal Audit participates in both internal and external quality assurance assessments. Internal assessments include ongoing monitoring of the performance of the internal audit activity and periodic self-assessments. External assessments are done every 5 years or less, and are conducted by a qualified, independent audit team from outside of the organization. The County's independent audit advisory committee oversees this work. A report with findings and recommendations for improvement is issued to the Board of Supervisors.
