Elected Official's Guide to Audit Committees
In the wake of recent private-sector accounting scandals, attention has focused as never before on the importance of sound internal control, reliable financial reports, and independent audits. An effective audit committee is crucial for helping governments achieve all three objectives. This booklet summarizes GFOA's re-examination of the role, structure, and operations of public-sector audit committees. The question-and-answer format and non-technical writing style make this booklet ideal for widespread distribution to elected officials and others.
