City Auditor

To our Citizens,
Thank you for visiting the website of the City of Cape Coral's, City Auditor’s Office.
This site reflects the City Auditor's efforts to communicate with the citizens of Cape Coral and internal auditing practitioners around the world. We will provide online users with current information on our accomplishments, sources of industry literature that guide our day-to-day operations and a way for you to communicate with us. 

In 2003, the voters in Cape Coral approved a referendum to establish a City Auditor's Office that would report directly to the City Council. It was the intent of this referendum to provide the City with an independent audit function to evaluate City policies, programs, and services to determine if those operations were conducted in accordance with state and federal law, City ordinances, polices and regulations and financial and operational internal controls.

This independent audit function reports directly to the City Council. This reporting structure is designed to support and protect the independence of the City Auditor's Office. Audit office resources are allocated to engagements using a risk based methodology.

Vision:
It is our vision to work in partnership with the City Council, City Management and the Community without compromising independence, objectivity or integrity with the purpose of producing audits that add value and support the strategic initiatives, objectives and risk of the City.

Mission:
Our mission is to enhance and protect organizational value by providing independent, risk-based objective assurance, advice, and insight tot he City. 

Values:
The City Auditor's Office conducts its work with an attitude that is independent, objective, and fact-based. We will always maintain and protect our independence and objectivity both in fact and in appearance. We will demonstrate integrity, competence, and due professional care. We will strive to demonstrate a quality and continuous improvement to ensure we are a trusted advisor and provide value to the City.
