Audit Committee

The Audit Committee was created in 2006 when Denver voters voted to change the City Charter in order to streamline the City's financial structure. This Charter change, effective January 1, 2008, included the establishment of an independent Audit Committee.  

Auditor O'brien is the chair of the Audit Committee.

Audit Committee Structure

The Audit Committee is chaired by the Auditor and consists of the Auditor and six other members, with two each appointed by the Mayor, the City Council, and the Auditor.  With the exception of the Auditor, no member of the Committee may hold any other office or employment with the City while serving on the Committee.  Members are appointed on the basis of education or experience in accounting, auditing, financial management, or related fields of expertise.  They serve four-year terms and are eligible for reappointment.

Responsibilities

The Audit Committee receives the reports of audits conducted by the Audit Services Division of the Auditor's Office.  The Audits are made available to the public, the Mayor, City Council and other officials.  You can view these audits on the Audit Reports page. 

External Audit 

Annually, the Audit Committee commissions and oversees an independent external audit of the finances of the City and County of Denver.  This audit is of the City's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).  The Audit Committee communicates findings and recommendations of the external auditor to the Mayor, Chief Financial Officer, City Council and to the general public.
