OCP's Internal Audit Function Audited

Friday, September 12, 2014

Every three years, the Office of Contracting and Procurement’s internal audit function is subject to a peer review by a panel of auditors from across the nation. The panel uses the Yellow Book standards as created by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to evaluate the efficacy of state and local government internal audit programs. 

In 2011, the panel deemed OCP’s internal quality control system to be suitably designed and operating effectively to provide reasonable assurance of compliance with Government Auditing Standards. OCP recorded the same result in the 2014 peer review conducted by a highly credentialed panel comprised of past presidents of the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA), and City and Deputy City Auditors from Phoenix, Arizona and Atlanta, Georgia.
