Audit Services Department

The Audit Services Department serves a three-fold role in the City of Durham’s functions:

  • As an Internal Audit department, our number one goal is to hold the employees and departments of the City to the highest ethical standards. 
  • Secondly, we serve as Internal Fraud Investigators when fraud, waste, or abuse is alleged against a City employee or department. 
  • Finally, in order to constantly foster high ethical standards, we provide in-depth ethical training to all City employees on a rolling basis.
