How does an area get selected for audit?
An annual risk assessment is prepared which computes an overall risk factor for each area based on internal environment, external environment, financial impact, and operational impact. Those areas rated the highest are recommended for audit for that year.

The City Commission or City Manager may also request specific audits.
