Office of Contract Compliance
The City Council expressed interest in a performance audit of the Office of Contract Compliance to assess its ability to achieve diversity goals in the city's equal business opportunity program. The office is responsible for ensuring that minority- and women-owned small businesses and disadvantaged businesses participate in the city's contract projects as well as monitoring compliance with the diversity goals. This audit will focus on assessing controls in the certification process and contract monitoring.
Forensic Review—Former CFO Transactions (Contract)
Following media accounts of improper payments made by the city's former chief financial officer, City Council President Moore requested a forensic review of high risk transactions to identify specific overriding actions performed or weaknesses in existing internal controls that allowed the actions to occur. We have contracted with Windham Brannon to perform this work.
We are conducting a performance audit of Atlanta Information Management’s implementation of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Our objectives are to understand whether AIM is progressing along an implementation roadmap provided by its cybersecurity contractor. We also intend to assess whether there are barriers to implementation of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Due to the sensitive security nature of this audit, our public reporting will be limited.
Continuous auditing leverages technology to test controls and to identify potential red flags in transactions as, or soon after, they occur. We will work with the Department of Finance and other stakeholders to identify high-risk transactions to develop a continuous audit program.
