Annual Internal Audit Plan

To ensure the most efficient and effective utilization of the Department of Inspector General (Department) resources, it is essential areas selected for audit be carefully considered. Since the audit function, like other governmental functions, must provide the maximum possible benefit to Pasco County citizens, audits that will add the most value are prioritized. Due to the large number of possible areas to audit throughout Clerk and County operations and limited staff resources to audit them, a careful audit selection process was established. Beginning in 2021, a risk-based planning process was conducted to develop annual audit plans.
