Draft of OIG’s 2017 Audit Plan Available for Public Comment

The City of Chicago Office of Inspector General (OIG) has published a draft of the 2017 Annual

Plan for its Audit and Program Review Section. The Audit Plan includes information on audits that OIG is currently considering for 2017, follow-up audits that are likely to occur in 2017, ongoing projects, and audits completed year to date.

OIG is soliciting comments from City Council, City Hall, and the public for a period of 45 days from the date of publication, or until November 14th. OIG will consider all comments in finalizing its 2017 Audit Plan. The 2017 Audit Plan will set forth intended subjects for audit but will not provide an order of priority. Work contemplated by the Audit Plan will remain fluid with audits added and adjusted according to a variety of factors such as new events and information as well as resources available.

The 2017 Draft Audit Plan is available at http://bit.ly/017ADP.
