 Internal Audit Department

The Savannah-Chatham County Internal Audit Department office was established by a resolution of the Board of Education in 1991 and updated in 1997.

Internal Audit performs academic audits, financial audits, operational audits and control self assessments of the various academic programs, departments and school sites within the District. The Internal Audit Department reports to the President of the Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education through the Audit Committee and its Chairperson. Our audits are conducted in accordance with the Government Auditing Standards.

​As identified in the Internal Auditing in the Public Sector illustration, The Internal Audit Department's functions are to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness in the public service delivery, compliance with legal, policies, and fiscal requirements, transparent with ethical standards and integrity​​ to ensure public interest and goods, assist​ with governance and ensure accountability in public funding. This is conducted by testing and strengthening internal controls, and providing the Board and the District with objective independent analyses of how well academic programs and District operations are functioning.
