FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RubinBrown, Certified Accountants and & Business Consultants, has been selected to perform the City of Springfield’s internal audit functions, beginning immediately. Representatives from the firm’s St. Louis office will perform 3-4 departmental audits over the course of the year.
Previously, the City employed a full-time internal auditor, Kristy Bork. Bork now serves as the assistant director of finance and aviation for the Springfield-Branson National Airport. The firm is being paid for with the funds saved by not refilling the full-time position.
RubinBrown will identify risks based on input from management and City Council’s Finance & Administration Committee. From this analysis, the firm will develop a 3-5 year internal audit plan to present for the committee’s approval. As has been done in the past, audit results will be announced publicly, with reports posted on springfieldmo.gov. They expected to begin the first audit in October.
“Internal audits provide important information to the City’s leadership team, as well as accountability to the taxpayers,” said Greg Burris, City Manager. “RubinBrown has an impressive list of both public and private sector clients and a deep bench of staff members with a broad range of expertise. We look forward to working with them.”
