Ms. Koshmider explained that the audit plan is done on an annual basis. The hours are based on the previous year’s activities.

The last page will detail performance audits that the Internal Audit Department would like to complete. Dr. Maestas had some questions regarding the allocation of hours. Mr. Garcia asked if the performance audits listed were in any priority order. Ms. Koshmider answered no and explained that most of the departments in APS have not had a performance audit done.
