Internal Auditing

Internal Audit serves as an independent appraisal function that supplies the Mayor, City Council, and all levels of management with objective evaluations, appraisals and recommendations for activities reviewed. Internal Audit is established by the City of Memphis as a staff function to the Mayor and City Council. The City Auditor reports functionally to the Mayor and administratively to the Chief Operating Officer.

The scope of Internal Audit and its audit activities encompasses the examination and evaluation of the adequacy, efficiency, and effectiveness of City government’s system of internal controls and the quality of performance in carrying out assigned responsibilities. 

Whistleblower Hotline

Internal Audit has implemented a whistleblower hotline program to provide employees, vendors, and business partners with a system to report and obtain feedback regarding potential acts of fraud, waste, and/or abuse of City resources. Also, employees may report ethics, safety, and policy violations.
