The City Auditor’s Audit Plan identifies what audits the office will conduct each year.
The Office of the City Auditor, a City department that works to make Austin better for all residents, has begun work on projects included in its approved 2021 Audit Plan.
The City Auditor’s Audit Plan identifies what audits the office will conduct each year. The current plan includes audits of important topics such as reimagining public safety, coronavirus response, cybersecurity, and cost savings.
The City Auditor relies on input from City leaders and community members to help create the Audit Plan. The Auditor’s Office welcomes any suggestions or other input about what audits we should consider each year.
City Auditor Corrie Stokes presented draft versions of the current plan at the September and October meetings of the City Council Audit and Finance Committee. Committee members review the plan and recommend it to the full City Council. The Austin City Council approved the City Auditor’s 2021 Audit Plan on October 29, 2020.
You can review both current and prior year Audit Plans on the City Auditor’s website via the Documents page. This page also includes links to our issued reports, recommendations, accomplishments, and peer review results.
The City Auditor’s Office welcomes feedback via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or social media @austinauditor.
