Exhibit 4: Audit Projects Scorecard
Audit services (AS) are the most important work of the SAO. Here data are sorted and displayed by operational areas. Row 2 shows the four operational areas at the SAO (AS, ES, MAS, SCO); row 3 indicates the two AS subdivisions: audit and review and special investigations unit. Row 4 links the five area views to the audit and review box. The performance story here is that two divisions are somewhat below expectations (yellow); one is meeting its goals (green); and the SCO division isn’t up to date because data are missing (gray).
