Summary

The purpose of this report is to provide City Council with details of the Auditor General’s 2013 Audit Work Plan.  The 2013 Audit Work Plan is attached as Appendix 1 to this report.  Appendix 2 includes a summary of future potential audits.  Appendix 3 includes audits completed during the period 2007 to 2012.
