Each year, the Internal Audit Department prepares an annual audit plan based on discussions with City leadership, analysis of the City’s revenues and expenses, and emerging government audit industry trends. This proposed plan is then presented to the City Council for direction and ultimately approved via ordinances. View previous Audit Plan Ordinances.
Internal Audit also encourages Denton residents to submit their future audit ideas.
