A large county sheriff's office improves internal controls and verifies compliance with laws and policies

Challenge 

A large county needed an internal audit to inform internal control improvements and verify compliance with federal and state laws and policies. 

Solution 

BerryDunn’s government assurance team:

  • Identified key audit focus areas by reviewing process documentation, conducting a physical walkthrough, and performing observations and stakeholder interviews. 
  • Created and implemented a tailored testing approach to investigate areas of significant interest and benefit to the public. 
  • Tested, documented, and rated control vulnerabilities by inherent and residual risk, and provided recommendations for improvement.  

Outcome 

BerryDunn’s internal audit team provided the County Auditor with the necessary information to assess current processes, ensure that proper measures are in place to prevent errors with inmate releases, properly notify victims upon release, and verify that processes are consistently followed.
