Pinellas approves auditor position
Pinellas County school board members this morning unanimously approved a policy (see page 12 of the June 14 agenda here) allowing the board to contract with an outside independent auditor to help the board "examine and evaluate its activities, including the efficiency and effectiveness of the district's system of internal controls and the quality of performance."
The auditor will, according to the policy, "provide analysis, appraisals, recommendations, counsel and information concerning the activities reviewed."
There is no word now on when the board might first contract with an auditor to look at district functions -- and no word now on how much the district might pay for such work.
If you were making the decision about what issues you want to see an independent auditor tackle, what would you suggest?
