The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we all manage our business and respective processes - especially for cities and towns.
Join our upcoming webinar, How to Leverage Internal Audits to Enhance Municipal Government, as we discuss best practices and new protocols for municipalities to consider. Presenters from blumshapiro will highlight areas your municipality should be focused on including:
The Value Proposition for Internal Audits
The reality of most municipalities is that public officials aren’t always equipped with the structure to effectively oversee, manage and monitor programs and operations. Internal Audits can help identify unwanted control and operational deviations from best practices. This presentation will discuss common areas of municipal risks and exposures, what an internal audit is, and how it can help you.
Developing the Program: How to Get Started
A practical, Internal Audit Program is risk-based: understanding and quantifying risks that are unique to each operational area of your government. From there, internal audit techniques are applied to help improve operations and implement best practices. This presentation will focus on structuring a sustainable program to evaluate the various operating areas (internal Departments and programs). The goal is to identify control improvements, workflow bottlenecks and streamlining needs, along with opportunities to improve performance measurement and enhance service delivery.
Case Studies: Internal Audits Making a Difference in Local Government
Our team will be presenting real-life case studies on how Internal Audit services has helped improve governments just like yours.
Please submit your questions regarding this topic in the registration form. We will organize your submissions and address your questions and concerns during the webinar.
