For Possible Action: To introduce on first reading, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code, Title 2, Administration and Personnel, Chapter 2.14, Carson City Audit Committee, amending Section 2.14.040, Responsibilities of the Carson City Audit Committee, by adding additional review and recommendation responsibilities regarding the adequacy of city department and office performance measures for the purposes of internal audits, setting forth auditing standards, and requiring the committee to oversee the internal auditor's creation and implementation of fraud, waste and abuse identification processes and reporting, and other matters properly related thereto. (Bill Prowse, Audit Committee Vice Chair)

Staff Summary: The original ordinance, as amended, listed a number of responsibilities of the Carson City audit committee but did not require the internal auditor to perform his duties in conformance with professional standards, such as are required for external financial auditors, the legal profession, engineers, building inspectors and other professions. Such standards are required of internal audit organizations worldwide. These standards help ensure any persons performing internal audit work for Carson City meets basic levels of independence, qualifications, experience, ability and that conclusions and recommendations are adequately reported. Further, the existing ordinance does not include provisions that the internal auditor review the adequacy of the city departments' or offices' performance measures. Finally, the City does not have established processes to identify potential fraud, waste and abuse (FWB) of city resources and property nor to respond to such situations if identified. The amended ordinance directs the internal auditor to create and implement processes to identify potential FWB of city resources and property and establish a findings protocol regarding any such issues identified by the internal auditor.
