NORTH MIAMI RECEIVES PRELIMINARY OPERATIONAL AUDIT FINDINGS

North Miami, FL – 10/20/2017

On October 10, the city of North Miami received from the State of Florida’s Auditor General, a list of preliminary and tentative audit findings and recommendations that may be included in a report to be prepared on the operational audit of the City. This document mandates that within 30 days of receipt, the City should provide details of actual or proposed corrective actions taken or to be taken regarding areas of focus highlighted by the State Auditor General.    

Prior to receipt of the Auditor General’s preliminary findings, corrective action had been taken regarding many of the highlighted areas of focus. Though many of these areas pre-date the tenure of current City administration, City officials are diligently collaborating to appropriately address all areas of focus highlighted by the Auditor General in order to meet the 30 day deadline.   

Once actual and proposed responses to the preliminary findings are forwarded to the Auditor General by the City, representatives from the Auditor General’s Office will meet with City Administration to discuss and submit a final audit report.   

The Auditor General’s operational audit of the City of North Miami began on March 10, 2015. It is focused on City operations from 2012 to 2015. The operational audit was requested and voted upon, 3-1, by the North Miami City Council on July 8, 2014. The focus of an operational audit is to evaluate management's performance in establishing and maintaining internal controls and administering assigned responsibilities in accordance with laws, rules, regulations, contracts, grants, and other guidelines. The City of North Miami sent an official request to the Joint Legislature Auditing Committee (JLAC) on July 22, 2014. The JLAC voted to proceed with North Miami’s request, prompting the Auditor General to begin working with the City to obtain necessary fact-finding documents and resources needed to proceed in March 2015.
