City Auditor reports

The City Auditor's Office operates under a public reporting protocol that requires all audit reports to be issued publicly by the City Auditor, unless a specific exemption to disclosure exists under FOIP.

For each audit, the City Auditor issues a written report that includes a management response and action plan. As of 2005 September, the City Auditor presents the full report to Audit Committee, either on an individual basis or as part of the quarterly reports (Authority: AC2005-47).

Audit reports become public through the Agenda distribution process set out in Procedure Bylaw 44M2006.
