In its deliberation of the City’s 2017 budget, City Council approved a temporary increase of $1.0 million to the Auditor General’s 2017 Operating Budget to provide additional capacity to undertake value for money audits and investigations, subject to a report back to Audit and Executive Committees on a revised Audit Work Plan.
City Council’s decision is accessible on the City web site at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2017.EX22.2
In response to City Council’s direction, the Auditor General submits this revised Work Plan report to the Audit and Executive Committees. The purpose of this report is to advise the Committees of the audit projects that will be added to the Auditor General’s 2017 Work Plan.
The following four new projects will be added to the 2017 Work Plan:
- Audit of Fire Services Operations Command
- Audit of construction contracts issued by the Engineering and Construction Services Division
- Audit of information technology asset management
- Audit of information technology network infrastructure
The Auditor General’s Forensic Unit will also be undertaking more major investigations with these additional resources.
