Internal Audit

Annual Plan

The Director of Internal Audit prepares an annual audit plan at the beginning of each fiscal year. Input is solicited from the Municipal Assembly, the Mayor, and Administration officials. The audit plan is submitted first to the Municipal Audit Committee members for review, comment and endorsement and then to the Municipal Assembly for approval. The audit plan may be revised to accommodate requests from the Assembly and the Administration according to the procedures outlined in the Anchorage Municipal Code Section 3.20. Criteria for scheduling audits include the following:

  • Requests by the Municipal Assembly and Administration
  • Potential for cost savings through more efficient, effective management
  • Potential for increasing revenues   
  • Areas with a high risk of loss or misappropriation
  • Suspected fraud or error
  • Areas identified with weak internal controls or known problems
  • Safeguarding and management of Municipal assets
  • Issues identified by the external auditors
