What are internal auditors looking for?
Internal auditors primarily look for compliance with Commission policies and sound internal controls. By following these policies we help protect the agency from unnecessary risks and help ensure sound business practices are consistent throughout all departments. However, not all internal controls can be codified in policy. If we find control weaknesses, we make recommendations to implement a control, even though it may not be specifically required by policy.
