On Wednesday, County Auditor Lance Taguchi transmitted a letter to members of the County Council with his plan of audits proposed to be conducted for the remaining six months of Fiscal Year (FY) 2014.
The plan contains Charter mandated projects, including overseeing the independent annual financial audit of the County of Maui for FY 2013 and procurement of the audits for FY 2014-2018.
Self-initiated audits will examine the Treasury function of the Department of Finance, in addition to an audit of expenditures from the FY 2012 Budget appropriation for the Old Wailuku Post Office Rehabilitation Project.
“I look forward to the work of the County Auditor and his recommendations,” said Councilmember Mike White.
“It is my hope that the audits will assist in improving and streamlining operations of our County,” he said.
White was the original initiator of the charter amendment voted into law by voters in the November 2012 election, creating a County Auditor position.
Yearly, the County Auditor must submit to the Mayor and Council a plan of audits proposed to be conducted during the fiscal year.
