Independent Audit Advisory Committee

The Office of the Nassau County Comptroller is reviewing applications from Nassau County residents who wish to serve on the Independent Audit Advisory Committee.

The Independent Audit Advisory Committee, first created in 2003, will be tasked with reviewing the county’s financial reporting processes and providing oversight of its internal fiscal controls. It will also play an important role in regularly examining the county’s annual external audit.

The committee will comprise five members of the public who have no conflicts or business related to county government and hold no position in any political party or local government.

The Comptroller, the County Executive or her designee and a Republican and Democratic member of the Legislature’s finance committee or their designees will serve as ex-officio non-voting members of the committee.

Please be informed that you should not apply for appointment to the IAAC if you are unable in any manner to act independently or if you have any present, past, or anticipated future dealing with the County which would affect your ability to act independently.

Please also be informed that, if you are selected for appointment to the IAAC, you will need to complete a Background Information Questionnaire, which will require disclosure of any conflicts of interest.

If you are appointed to the IAAC, you will be required, at a minimum, but not limited to:

►Be available to meet regularly (at least quarterly);

►Review written communications between the County and its independent auditors;

►Provide input into and monitoring of an external audit plan; and

►Remove yourself from the Committee if any conflicts of interest arise.
