The Auditor General reviews the implementation status of outstanding audit recommendations, and reports the review results to City Council through the Audit Committee.
As of September 30, 2020, there were 749 outstanding recommendations, 296 were identified as high priority.
This year, our Office implemented a new audit management technology solution designed for auditors to manage all aspects of the audit. As an extension to the new system, we integrated continuous tracking of the implementation status of audit recommendations. The new technology will improve the efficiency and timeliness of how we collect information from management for the follow-up reviews.
This report describes the new follow-up process and the Auditor General’s plan to restart the follow-up work beginning November 2020.
