Our performance audit "Business License Taxes: Providing Better Guidance and Customer Service Will Increase Revenues" is item 21 on tonight's City Council Consent Calendar.


Also on tonight's agenda are two reports related to our past audits:

(See "Employee Benefits: Tough Decisions Ahead - Nov. 2010" and "Failing Streets: Time to Change Direction to Achieve Sustainability - Nov. 2011")


 We currently have two audits in the planning phase:


Permit Center

Objective:  Do the Planning Department's processes result in effiecient and timely issuance of building permits?


Shelter Plus Care 

Objective: Do the Housing Department's procedures and staffing ensure that Shelter Plus Care expenditures meet statutory and regulatory requirements?


Other audits on the 2012 plan include Affects of Reductions in Federal and State Funding on City Services and City Ethics Policies: Employee Survey.

We appreciate your continued support for our work to help Berkeley deliver services in a more efficient, effective, and equitable way.  We would like your help in identifying audit priorities for 2013. Please contact me at (or at 981-6750) with your questions, comments, and ideas.  I look forward to hearing from you.
