Internal Audit Responsibilities
Internal Audit acts as a liaison between external auditors (Auditor General, OPPAGA, and federal and state auditors) to ensure effective coordination of audit activities. This liaison activity ensures that responses to audits are coordinated between program areas, offices, and external auditors. The Internal Audit external liaison will coordinate entrance and exit conferences, compile the coordinated written response to the audit, monitor corrective action, and complete follow-up activities.
Six-Month Status Reports
The Department is statutorily required to submit a six-month status report of corrective actions taken on Auditor General and OPPAGA findings and recommendations. This report is to be submitted to the agency head, CIG, and the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee (JLAC).
