We will be conducting a contract administration audit surrounding the City’s Business Improvement District (BID) Program, which includes ten BIDs that promote and market commercial areas of the City. The audit objectives are to assess the City’s oversight of the BID program, compliance with BID agreements, and best practices that could help strengthen Long Beach’s program. We anticipate releasing the report later this year.
The audit will evaluate the Fire Department’s inventory management practices surrounding both general and medical supplies, as well as equipment, that are utilized for firefighting, paramedic and general operations. The audit will assess whether the Fire Department is properly tracking, monitoring and safeguarding its supplies and equipment. We anticipate completion of this audit later this year.
We will be conducting an audit of the City’s Animal Care Services (ACS) provided under the Department of Parks, Recreations, and Marine. The audit will evaluate ACS operations and determine the extent to which policies, procedures, and practices are effective. The audit’s focus will be on various aspects of operations, some of which include animal intake, programs and partnerships, and population data. Wherever possible, ACS operations will be assessed in comparison to industry best practices. We anticipate releasing the report later this year.
