Internal Audit

The mission of Internal Audit is to promote efficient and effective programs and procedures for the Chesapeake Public School system.

Evaluation and assessing the operations of finances, managerial controls and other business risks help make the school system operate more efficiently. Internal Audit makes recommendations of corrective practices to be implemented to enhance the operational performance.

The objective of the Chesapeake Public Schools’ Internal Audit Department is to furnish appropriate administrators with analyses, appraisals, recommendations, counsel and information concerning the activities reviewed. The audit objective includes promoting effective and efficient controls at reasonable cost. The scope of internal auditing encompasses the examination and evaluation of the adequacy and effectiveness of Chesapeake Public Schools’ system of internal control and the quality of performance in carrying out assigned responsibilities. To accomplish this responsibility, all school division activities are subject to audit as directed by the Superintendent.
