Executive Summaries of Audit Reports

The Office of Internal Audit (OIA) was established to provide an independent appraisal function to examine and evaluate City programs and activities as a service to City management. OIA provides a service to management that is directed towards :

  • improving the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of City programs, activities and functions;
  • evaluating the adequacy of internal management and financial controls; and
  • detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse

The results of OIA audits and evaluations are provided to City management as formal reports, which include, when appropriate, recommendations for corrective actions and management improvements. Starting in Fiscal Year 2016, Executive Summaries of Audit Reports are posted for public review:


Reporting Fraud, Waste and Abuse

In the City of Alexandria, we consider maintaining the public trust to be our top priority. To help ensure that we provide residents, vendors, employees and others who visit the City with a trustworthy, efficient, effective and open government, the City has established an online reporting form, hosted by a third party vendor.

This reporting form allows residents, vendors, visitors and City employees to confidentially report:

  • Violations of laws, rules or regulations
  • Gross mismanagement
  • Gross waste of funds
  • Abuse of authority or issues that affect public health and safety
  • Procurement fraud
  • Suspected theft of City funds or assets
  •  Kickbacks or bribery
  • Suspected worker's compensation fraud 
  •  False reimbursement claims
  • Employee conduct that violates City, state, or federal laws
  • Other issues that might be criminal in nature

Please use the Ethical Advocate form to submit a report to the City's Internal Audit Department.
