Internal Audit

Primary Contact: Jessica Patrick, Audit Manager (502)782-4083

The Internal Audit Branch conducts audits of cabinet processes in an independent and professional manner. Our team consists of individuals with a variety of training, experience and certifications.
The objective of the Internal Audit Branch is to ensure the Cabinet has appropriate internal controls in place to ensure taxpayer dollars are accounted for appropriately and in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations. We accomplish this by:
  • Evaluating the adequacy of the Cabinet's internal control structure
  • Accessing compliance with written policies and procedures as well as laws and regulations
  • Evaluating the reliability of financial information
  • Verifying the existence of assets and ensuring proper safeguards for their protection
  • Reviewing operations or programs to ascertain whether results are consistent with goals and objectives
In the course of conducting audits, the auditor is authorized to have full, free and unrestricted access to property, personnel and records relevant to the area under audit.
