APPLICANTS SOUGHT FOR COUNTY’S INTERNAL AUDIT COMMITTEE

Doña Ana County is seeking applicants willing to serve on the county’s Internal Audit Committee. The committee comprises two county commissioners and three members of the public. Two of the public-sector seats are open for appointment.

The internal audit function is designed to strengthen county procedures and to emphasize accountability to the taxpayers. The committee works closely with the Internal Auditor to develop a comprehensive plan for studying problem areas and recommending workable solutions to the Board of County Commissioners and the county manager that can subsequently be implemented.

Letters of interest and resumes will be accepted through 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16 in the Doña Ana County Finance Department. Application materials should be submitted to Jaime Bari, Director of Finance, at 180 W. Amador Ave., Las Cruces, N.M. 88001.

“This committee helps ensure accountability for county government,” said County Manager Brian D. Haines. “The taxpayers of Doña Ana County can rest assured that we take the expenditure of public funds very seriously, and this committee helps us make the process both transparent and reflective of that commitment.”
