About the Department
The Office of the County Auditor is charged with providing independent, objective assurance and advisory services to Fulton County Management in order to ensure the validity and reliability of fiscal and performance reporting of county-wide operations.
Under the leadership of the County Auditor, the office is responsible for evaluating the effectiveness of internal controls and programs, ensure regulatory compliance, and identify opportunities for process improvements that adequately safeguard the organization against loss, waste or abuse. Using knowledge and professional judgment, the Office of the County Auditor provides an independent appraisal of the County’s financial, operational, and control activities.
We are measuring the percentage of audit recommendations agreed to by management. Recommendations state what internal audit believes should be done to accomplish beneficial results. They do not direct what must be done but seek to convince others of what needs to be done. As such, our recommendations are action-oriented, convincing, well-supported, and effective. When appropriately implemented, they should get the desired beneficial results.
We are measuring the percentage of Whistleblower Hotline cases reviewed within 24 hours of submission. To ensure a response is given within 24 hours or the next business day, EthicsPoint, the Incident Management System, will send a simultaneous email notification to the appointed staff's email account once a case is received.
