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 Mayor and the entire City Council.
