Overview of Internal Audit

We are here to help Charles County accomplish its mission and strategic objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. The Internal Auditor reports administratively to the Charles County Administrator or designee and functionally to the Internal Audit Oversight Committee.

  • performance audits
  • consulting services
  • investigative engagements
  • follow-up audits

Strategic Objectives

  • Work to improve county government service and performance by focusing audit work on areas of high risk and high impact.
  • Work with management to improve functions and processes and strengthen internal controls.
  • Build public trust by informing Charles County citizens of the results of our efforts to improve county government.
