Internal Audit is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of the City of Henderson’s operations, as well as to combat fraud, waste, and abuse.

The Internal Audit Department conducts audits in accordance with the Government Auditing Standards, as issued by the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) under the authority of the Comptroller General of the United States. These standards address auditor independence, judgment, and professional qualifications, as well as standards for planning, conducting, and reporting on government audits.

An ongoing risk assessment is used to prepare the annual audit plan, reviewed and approved by the Audit Committee. Audit assignments are selected from the approved plan. The City Auditor meets with the Audit Committee at least once per quarter to review and approve audit reports.

The Internal Audit Department conducts the following types of audit work:

  • Performance Audits
  • Financial Audits
  • Management Support/Consulting Services
