The Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA) developed the Peer Review Program to assist local government audit organizations in meeting the profession’s peer review requirements. The objective of a peer review is to determine whether an audit organization’s quality control system is suitably designed and is in place and operating effectively. A peer review also provides assurance that an audit organization is following its established policies and procedures and applicable auditing standards.
In November 2019, the Howard County Office of the County Auditor requested its first ever peer review and received the highest rating possible.The review included scrutiny of our internal quality control system to ensure that it is adequately designed and operating effectively. This provides reasonable assurance of compliance with Government Auditing Standards issued by the Comptroller General of the United States and applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
