Auditor General Tables her Annual Report – 2021 and the 2022-2023 Audit Work Plan

Ottawa – Today, Auditor General Nathalie Gougeon tabled her first annual report: Annual Report – 2021
In it, she outlined her vision for the Auditor General’s Office (OAG) and its role in building public trust in
municipal government through increased transparency. In addition, she articulated the Office’s
mandate, introduces her team, and outlined the work completed by her Office in 2021.The report also
identified a number of key measures that the OAG uses in its performance management. As well, audit
surveys of City staff and the Senior management team showed a high level of satisfaction with the
OAG’s performance.

Mme Gougeon also tabled her 2022-2023 Audit Work Plan, a multi-year work plan. It identified those
audits already under way and new audits to commence in 2022 and 2023. The OAG uses a risk-based
process to identify audit priorities with the key goals of helping identify and mitigate risks, and to
continue to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of City operations.

“Flexibility has been incorporated into the Audit Work Plan, so we have the agility to quickly shift
priorities in an ever-changing landscape,” said Mme Gougeon. “This is why we were able to accept the
request by Council to consider an audit of Stage 1 LRT.”

Other notable audit topics in the Work Plan include, the Pandemic Response, Affordable Housing,
Progress Towards the City’s Sustainability Development Strategies, Cybersecurity and Corporate
Diversity and Inclusion.

A full copy of the Annual Report and the 2022-2023 Audit Workplan are available on the Ottawa Auditor
General’s website under Annual Reports and Annual Workplan, respectively.
