The fundamental reason this classification exists is to conduct operational and financial audits of all City departments and/or functions. The Auditor performs professional, advanced-level, financial-related, performance-related audits in accordance with General Accepted Governmental Auditing Standards. Audit assignments are broad in nature and include situations of sometimes unusual complexity. The Auditor determines through research that prescribed financial management and operational procedures are in compliance with regulations. Work includes auditing departmental accounts and records to determine compliance with established accounting policies, procedures, and contracts, evaluating the efficiency, quality and timeliness of operations, and reporting audit findings and recommendations to responsible City officials. The Auditor works for the Mayor of the City of Montgomery and assignments require trips to departmental field offices. Work is performed with considerable independence subject to established accounting policies, procedures, and guidelines. The errors that can be made include not recognizing, thereby not addressing or correcting, costly errors being made by City departments.
