The mission of the Internal Audit Program (Program) is to assist the City in improving operations by promoting an economical,efficient, effective and fully accountable City government. We are committed to continual improvement of the audit process itself to make it ever more responsive to the City's changing needs The Program provides a broad array of audit services to its primary clients: the Mayor, the City Council and the City Manager.
Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management,control, and governance processes.
The Program's primary goal is to make the City of Fresno a model of effective operations to efficiently serve taxpayers and public agencies by eliminating wasteful and redundant activities and increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of operations. The goal will be achieved through reviews which appraise policies, plans, procedures, laws, ordinances and records. Management will provide the support necessary to ensure that the Program affords the City of Fresno the full range of value and services intended.
