On Thursday March 13th, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and City Controller Michael Lamb announced the city's audit schedule for 2008. The city charter states the controller is to perform audits of all the cities agencies, trusts, councils, and units of government at least once every four years. There are currently three audits being conducted, with at least five scheduled for this year.
Audits are being conducted on the City of Pittsburgh Police Property Room, the Office of Municipal Investigations, Bureau of Building Inspection, and Emergency Medical Services.
Audits to be conducted throughout the remainder of the year are: Pittsburgh City Council, City of Pittsburgh Employee Worker's Compensation procedures, Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh, Finance Department, and the Allegheny Regional Asset District.
The mayor also requested an audit of the Public Works Department which will be broken up into separated audits because of the size of the department. The Mayor's Office is to be audited in early 2009.
