Agenda Items

6. Review and discussion of the Nevada Open Meeting Law.

Staff Summary: Brief discussion on how meetings must be conducted to comply with the Open Meeting Law.

7. Discussion and possible action on the Audit Committee's role in working with a contract internal auditor.

Staff Summary: Because the City has selected a contract internal auditor instead of hiring an employee, the relationships between the committee, the Board of Supervisors, the contract auditor, and other City staff are not clearly understood or defined. There needs to be discussions between the committee, the contract internal auditor and City staff to clarify roles and responsibilities, including the contract auditor's reporting procedures.

8. Discussion and possible action on conducting a risk assessment.

Staff Summary: It is recommended that the internal auditor conduct a risk assessment to determine those areas that would be the greatest beneficiary of an internal audit. The parameters for the assessment need to be established to provide direction to the internal auditor so that a task can be developed by the auditor that defines the scope, time line and cost. Once the task is prepared by the auditor, it will be brought back to the committee for review and approval.

9. Discussion and action to schedule the next Audit Committee meeting.

10. Action to Adjourn
