Audit Services Department

The Audit Services Department performs an independent appraisal function designed to examine and evaluate activities within the City as a service to management, the Audit Services Oversight Committee, and elected officials.

The department acts as a managerial control that measures and evaluates the effectiveness of other controls.  It also reviews external entities to determine whether revenues have been properly remitted to the City and whether grant and pass-through funds are appropriately used. The department is also responsible for the administration of external audit contracts.

Guided by the City’s Strategic Plan, the Audit Services Department helps to ensure that the City of Durham is a well-managed city and good stewards of the City’s physical assets.
