Below is information on our reports in progress. Please note, depending on the scope of work, some audits can require a significant amount of time, and we do not report findings and recommendations until audits are complete. You can find out more about the audit process here.
We are currently 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.
We are currently 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.
