What is an audit finding?
If a significant issue is identified during the audit of a department (such as an overpayment to a vendor), the County Auditor expresses the results of its audit work as findings. Findings have certain elements, including criteria or basis for determining that a problem does exist, a condition or situation that was observed, the effect or impact of the condition, and the cause of the problem to the extent that it can be determined. Findings should result in recommendations that resolve the issue and are helpful to the policy makers, management and audited department.
