Staff Summary: The Audit Committee will discuss its future role and direction in terms of the Carson City audit function. In the recent past, Carson City has employed a full-time internal auditor with the direction to complete performance audits. After that, an internal auditor was hired and directed to complete audits that focused on internal control issues rather than overall program performance. Considering the current challenges facing Carson City, and taking into account the current priorities set by the Board of Supervisors, the Committee will determine what their role will be in future audit endeavors. The determination made by the Audit Committee will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors for possible concurrence and action.
