The Internal Audit Section of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) consists of one (1) audit director and three (3) auditors. This section performs independent, objective audit and consulting engagements that provide department managers with information on the adequacy and effectiveness of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s internal controls and on the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of department programs, activities, and functions. The OIG also provides management with advisory and technical services to assist management with issues that do not require extensive audit or consulting services. These audit responsibilities and services are carried out pursuant to the authority provided in Section 20.055, Florida Statutes.
The OIG conducts audit and consulting engagements in accordance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (the “Red Book”), which is published by the Institute of Internal Auditors, Inc. These standards provide a framework that enables internal auditors to conduct high quality and professional audits. The OIG develops an audit plan for each fiscal year based on input received from department senior managers and staff via a detailed risk assessment survey and subsequent interviews with senior managers. The audit plan for the current fiscal year can be accessed at the following link: Fiscal Year 2019-20 Audit Plan
