Audit Update

Data Analytics Update

Continuous Auditing is an innovative auditing technique piloted in the Denver Auditor’s Office in Auditor O’Brien’s first term. The Data Analytics Team is able to use technology to assess entire data sets, instead of pulling samples. This allows them to help improve our audit reporting and risk management by focusing our audit work where our attention might be most needed. Our team has presented information about how continuous auditing works to other government auditors across the country and continues to lead in the field. This report was presented to Audit Committee as a mid-year update of their data analytics work.
