The Office of City Internal Auditor was established in accordance with the City Charter, Article 3, Section 30. The City Internal Auditor is a council appointee and reports to an audit committee composed of three council members. The Office of City Internal Auditor is organizationally independent of city administration because the reporting structure provides the office a separate organizational status from the management of programs and functions subject to audit.

The City Internal Auditor is responsible for conducting audits of all departments, offices, boards, activities, and agencies of the city to independently determine whether:

  • Indications of fraud, abuse, or illegal acts are present
  • Management has established adequate internal controls to safeguard city assets
  • City resources and public funds are utilized economically, efficiently, and effectively
  • Financial and other reports are being provided that disclose fairly, accurately, and fully all information that is required by law
  • The desired result or benefits of programs, activities, functions, or policies are being achieved

An audit plan is prepared each year to serve as a guide to allocate scarce audit resources to areas that will most benefit the City of College Station. In developing the annual audit plan, the City Internal Auditor identifies potential audit topics based on several factors:

  • Assessing financial and performance risks
  • Reviewing the financial auditors’ results
  • Considering requests and suggestions from the City Council and city management
  • Determining the feasibility of audit topics and the availability of resources


To comply with Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards, audit offices are periodically peer reviewed. During the summer of 2018, the Office of the City Internal Auditor received the highest peer review opinion possible. The full peer review opinion letter can be seen here.

In addition, the Office of the City Internal Auditor periodically submits their audit reports to the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA) for review as part of the Knighton Award program. The Knighton Award was developed in 1995 as a way to recognize exceptional performance audit reports, and to help audit shops continue to improve their performance audit programs. The Office of the City Internal Auditor has received two Knighton Awards to date as follows:

2017 Distinguished Winner: Performance Audit of Public Works: Sanitation Division

2015 Exemplary Winner: Streets Maintenance Audit


The Office of the City Internal Auditor is headed by Ty Elliott. He is a Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Fraud Examiner, and Certified Government Auditing Professional. Mr. Elliott received his Bachelors of Science and Masters of Public Administration degrees from Brigham Young University.
