Audits conducted by the Fort Worth City Auditor’s Office are performed in accordance with the Government Auditing Standards (U. S. Government Accountability Office). These standards provide the foundation for government auditors to lead by example in the areas of independence, transparency, accountability, and quality through the audit process.
Each audit organization performing audits in accordance with Government Auditing Standards must have an external peer review performed by reviewers independent of the audit organization being reviewed – at least once every three years. The objective of the peer review is to determine whether an audit organization’s quality control system is suitably designed and is in place and operating effectively. A peer review also provides assurance that an audit organization is following its established policies and procedures and applicable standards.
Our mission is to assist the mayor and city council in the effective discharge of their responsibilities by identifying risks and conducting independent and objective evaluations of city programs and services. Internal Audit aims to help promote fiscal stewardship, transparency and add value by ensuring that the City of Fort Worth’s governance processes are efficient, effective and are in compliance with applicable regulatory guidelines.
