In December 2017, the Boston School Committee established the Internal Audit Task Force to improve operations, provide transparency, and improve trust amongst Boston Public Schools parents, students, employees, and taxpayers that district funds are being employed honestly and effectively.
The Internal Audit Task Force is charged with the following tasks:
- Proposing an Internal Audit policy for the Boston School Committee, including recommended reporting responsibility, initial and longer-term areas of focus, goals, and staffing template.
- Proposing an initial audit plan.
- Proposing a job description and expected qualifications for the director of Internal Audit for Boston Public Schools.
On March 27, 2019, the School Committee unanimously approved the Internal Audit Policy and Chief Audit Executive job description outlined here, as recommended by the Internal Audit Task Force.
