Internal Audit (IA) was established by Council in 1982, and its authority is specified by Article II, Section 15 of Cincinnati's Administrative Code.
Internal Audit conducts operational audits, within generally accepted government auditing standards, by providing independent and objective assurance designed to add value and improve the operations of the City of Cincinnati. This is achieved by examining and evaluating the efficiency of internal controls, and identifying and recommending opportunities to reduce cost, improve performance, and increase productivity of personnel and assets. Internal Audit Reports are available HERE.
Internal Audit’s role in preventing fraud is to conduct investigations either in response to a report from a City employee or other citizen to detect misconduct, inefficiency and waste within the programs and operations of City government.
Internal Audit does not currently have any CincyInsights.
