The Office of Internal Auditing is responsible for enhancing the quality and effectiveness of the city's products and services. Internal Auditors conduct independent appraisals of the city's operational processes to help improve efficiency, reduce costs, and ensure accountability. Internal auditing provides timely and relevant information to:
The Audit Committee
The citizens of Charleston concerning the city's programs, activities and functions
The departmental managers
This ensures accountability for the appropriate expenditure of resources and compliance with policies, procedures, grants, and laws.
