Internal Audit Division

The City of Little Rock’s Internal Audit Division is an independent and objective consulting division of Finance with a mission to serve the City of Little Rock Departments through independent analyses, assurances, and recommendations concerning the adequacy and effectiveness of the City’s internal control structure, operational procedures, safeguarding and utilization of the City’s resources, and performance of statutory and assigned responsibilities. 

Each year an annual audit plan is developed that incorporates a risk-based assessment of all the City’s operating departments and the results from previous audits (both internal and external).  The audit plan is adjusted as needed to take into consideration input provided by the Board of Directors, Executive Administration, Staff, legislative changes, software upgrades and implementations, special projects  and other events that may occur throughout the year.

The Internal Audit Division is constantly reviewing and evaluating the City’s control structure to ensure that we not only do the right things the right way but in the best way.  We invite you to help us. If you see something that you believe should be brought to our attention, we encourage you contact us. Follow the links below to leave a message or to call us at (501) 371-4557.
