The Internal Claims Auditor is an important part of the internal controls structure of a school district, serving to protect the District’s resources and improve its purchasing and claims processes. The Internal Claims Auditor reports weaknesses observed in the District’s purchasing, receipt, payment, and business functions, and recommends changes to the Board policies affecting the business functions of the District.
We provide a monthly Claims Audit Report and use this as a tool to develop an ongoing communication with the Audit Committee, Business Official, and Board of Education. Our claims auditor prepares an annual report directly to the School District’s Board of Education, addressing both the weaknesses and strengths of the cash disbursement process. Recommendations are made based on our audit findings.
