The Staff Auditor, reporting to an Internal Audit Supervisor, conducts financial, compliance, and operational audits and consulting engagements in accordance with the Internal Audit Plan and the Internal Audit Charter as approved by the Audit Committee. Audits include: assistance with the year-end financial statement audit; Section 404 testing; project/construction audits; operational audits, compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations; fraud testing; ethics compliance testing; and special projects. The overall goal is to add value, which is communicated through audit and consulting reports to Management and the Audit Committee.
Staff Auditors assist with various projects and activities of the department and work closely with Management personnel to achieve testing and project objectives. Coordination with IT Audit personnel is also essential during planning and fieldwork to ensure IT information is appropriately considered and leveraged in the audit work to drive effective and efficient audits. The Staff Auditor assists their Manager in the preparation of audit reports and also utilizes the external auditor's programs to perform financial statement testing for the year-end audit. The Staff Auditor helps create customized audit programs, takes accountability for the projects assigned, takes initiative on coordinating the audit work with contacts, proactively and appropriately challenges current policies and procedures, and ensures satisfactory completion of the work assigned.
