Key Performance Indicators
Description: Percentage of all audit recommendations that are agreed to by departments.
Why is this important: The primary purpose of the work of internal audit includes government accountability, reduced costs, increased revenues, and improved services. Auditing alone does not directly produce these benefits; they only come from the implementation of audit recommendations. Recommendations are more effective with management's support. One way to measure the effectiveness of recommendations is to track the percentage of recommendations agreed to by management compared to a target or goal for this measure. Additionally, this helps ensure that departments have adequate internal controls in place to accomplish specific goals and objectives within the organization.
Description: Percentage of site visits without compliance issues.
Why is this important: The primary objective of the site review is to determine if departments/divisions have met their general reporting and program-specific contractual requirements of the state, federal and county laws, policies, rules and regulations relating to Title VI.

The secondary objective of the Title VI site review is to provide technical assistance in the form of training and to make recommendations regarding corrective actions as deemed necessary and appropriate.
