Even the Office of the City Auditor gets audited through a process known as Peer Review.
Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS) require audit organizations receive an external peer review at least once every three years. This audit is conducted by a team of independent auditors from other governmental jurisdictions and provides assurance that established policies, procedures, and applicable standards are being followed. Peer reviews also determine if an audit organization has an internal quality control systems in place and if they are operating effectively.
The most recent peer review took place in 2016, covering the years 2013-2015. This review found the Office’s internal quality control system was compliant with GAGAS. The review also noted the City Auditor excelled at building positive relationships with City officials, which improved the communication of audit results.
