OIG Releases 2016 Audit Plan and List of Upcoming Audits

The City of Chicago Office of Inspector General (OIG) has published the 2016 Annual Audit Plan for its Audit and Program Review Section. The Plan outlines: audits that OIG is considering for 2016, follow-up audits likely to occur in 2016, ongoing audits, and audits completed in 2015.

OIG’s audits promote economical, efficient, effective, and ethical government in Chicago through independent, objective, evaluations of City programs. Since October 2014, OIG audits have identified over $7 million in uncollected revenue or potential savings for the City while helping City departments improve the delivery of public services through efficiency recommendations.

OIG’s ongoing audits include,

  • an audit of the Chicago Department of Transportation’s pavement management program covering street resurfacing and repair;
  • an audit examining whether or not firefighters and paramedics hold administrative positions that could be filled by civilians at a cost savings to taxpayers; and
  • an audit of the City’s hiring procedures that intends to assess the duration of the City’s hiring processes and to identify any sources of delay.
