About the Committee

The committee shall establish audit procedures that are sufficiently flexible for use in each Department, yet standardized enough to achieve uniformity, and provide Member Departments’ alternative solutions for compliance with audit requirements that also meet their individual needs. It shall also provide a forum for transportation related internal and external audit organizations to keep abreast of requirements, regulations, procedures, and innovative techniques employed by individual states, thus enhancing their efforts to provide a better service to management. It shall identify and report to its parent standing committee on any federal regulatory mandates of national concern. Each Member Department shall be entitled to membership thereon.

To ensure consistency and the best thinking of the Association, the committee shall work cooperatively, as appropriate, with other committees.
