Have you ever wondered, “Who audits the Auditors?”

GAO Government Auditing Standards requires “an external peer review performed by reviewers independent of the audit organization being reviewed at least once every 3 years”.

This week we underwent our independent peer review. 🕵️‍♀️

The Office of the City Auditor is proud to share that the results concluded that we received the highest level of assurance that our audits are conducted in compliance with Government Auditing Standards.

A copy of the External Quality Review can also be found on our website www.vbgov.com/cityauditor.

A message from the City Auditor regarding the Independent Investigation:

On Tuesday July 2, 2019 the Virginia Beach City Council unanimously passed a resolution directing the City Auditor to engage an independent consultant to conduct an independent review of the May 31, 2019 tragedy. The scope of the review to be performed by the independent consultant will include: creation of a timeline of events; a review of the perpetrator’s employment history and workplace interactions; and a review of relevant city policies, procedures and practices, including, without limitation, those related to facility security, prevention of workplace violence, and employee alerting and response to active shooter notifications.

Upon the completion of the review the firm will submit a written report to the City Council and present the findings of the review to the City Council. The report should include recommendations as to best practices that should be employed by the City.

The City Council seeks to start this review as quickly as possible. Thus the deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday July 12, 2019 at 4:00 PM EST. All other details, including the City Council resolution, are included in the Request for Proposal which can be found at www.vbgov.com/cityauditor.

Note: To ensure there is not any conflict in appearance or fact the following language is included in the proposal: “Offeror shall identify any City contractual relationships, business before the City. The intent is to not award a business with any existing or previous relationships with the City.”

As the City Auditor, I will be the liaison for this proposal and subsequent resulting contract. This includes preparing the RFP, reviewing the proposals, selecting the independent consultant, processing payments to the consultant, and ensuring the consultant has access to documents, records, and people to ensure a timely and thorough review. I will NOT be involved in the actual review or have any influence in the outcome of the review. My role is to be the liaison and provide oversight of the contract and will not be a part of the review team.

Please follow this page or visit www.vbgov.com/cityauditor for continued updates.

Thank you.
