The City of Pasadena’s Internal Audit Office was re-established in 2015 following a recommendation from the KPMG Forensic Accounting Services 2014 report on the City’s Underground Utility Program. Internal Audit reports to the City Manager’s Office and is currently staffed with an Internal Audit Manager and a Senior Internal Auditor.
In January 2016, the Audit Committee adopted the Internal Audit Framework, which outlines our roles and responsibilities, authority, access to records and auditing standards. We follow the Institute of Internal Auditors International Professional Practices Framework (Red Book auditing standards). Audits and consulting services are conducted in accordance with the Audit Committee’s adopted Annual Audit Plan, which are completed by Internal Audit staff and consultants.
