Office of the City Auditor
The Office of the City Auditor seeks to assist City Council and citizens in ensuring that our local government is accountable, transparent, and cost-effective. To achieve our mission, we provide professional audit and related services including inquiries, investigations, and management advisory.

Basic services include:
  • Assessing the reliability and integrity of financial and operating information and the means used to identify, measure, classify, and report such information
  • Evaluating the systems established to ensure compliance with those policies, plans, procedures, laws, and regulations which could have a significant impact on the City of Norfolk
  • Reviewing the means of safeguarding assets and, as appropriate, verifying the existence of such assets
  • Appraising the economy and efficiency with which resources are applied
  • Examining operations or programs to determine if results are consistent with established goals and whether the objectives are being carried out as planned
  • Conducting investigations and inquires of abuse, fraud, and waste

We also provide reports and briefings to the entire City Council or through the Audit Committee, composed of the mayor and two City Council members.
