Overview

The AOT Audit Section is seeking an Audit Deputy Chief who will report to the Audit Chief and have responsibility for the work of three (3) staff and will act as a resource for both state and federal regulatory compliance. The Audit Section is charged with minimizing risk of financial loss to the Agency of Transportation by overseeing and strengthening internal controls and being available to assist managers throughout the agency.


Essential duties include responsibility for directing and supporting internal and external audits, financial oversight of grant subrecipients, the contract terms of professional consultants, and review and acceptance of indirect cost charges to the agency from professional consultants under contract.


The AOT Audit Deputy Chief has full responsibility for interpreting, organizing, executing, and completing assignments in accordance with State and Federal guidelines and accepted audit practices, as well as for developing and attaining section objectives which are compatible with the policies and objectives of the Agency. By assessing risk, the incumbent determines the nature of audit assignments and where the efforts of staff must be focused. Collaboration with and requests from the Audit Chief and other managers leads to investigations of regulatory compliance in many different areas of AOT and often results in policy recommendations. The incumbent takes direct responsibility for periodic reconciliations and externally generated audits, which are frequent. Such reconciliations and audits are high profile, such as the statewide Single Audit. Work is high stakes, including federal program audits, direct oversight of the regulatory compliance of agency grant subrecipients and contractors, and frequent reporting to federal auditors.
