Audit Recommendations

At the core of our work is making recommendations to correct deficiencies, strengthen accountability, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of City programs. Our office provides a written report on the status of open audit recommendations to the City Council every six months. The following interactive dashboards allows users to view and sort open audit recommendations by department, type, date, potential budget savings, and target year.
