This report provides information regarding the implementation status of recommendations made by the Auditor General’s Forensic Unit in the context of special reviews, which were publicly reported through Audit Committee, as well as those made in the annual Fraud and Waste Hotline reports.
On an annual basis, the Auditor General reviews information provided by management to determine the accuracy of management assertions related to each recommendation. The results of this review are communicated to Council through the Audit Committee.
Since January 2007, the Auditor General has issued various reports related to its operation of the City’s Fraud and Waste Hotline Program. Since that time a total of twelve recommendations were reported publicly.
The results of our review indicate management has not fully implemented four recommendations made in reports by the Auditor General from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2011.
Continued efforts to implement outstanding recommendations will provide additional benefit to the City through cost savings, additional revenue and enhanced service delivery.
