Denver County Court fully implemented one recommendation made in the original audit report, but another has yet to be fully implemented or acted upon.

Recommendation report on IT General Controls Follow-up, 1 of 3 implemented


Auditor's Letter

June 3, 2021

In keeping with generally accepted government auditing standards and Auditor’s Office policy, as authorized by city ordinance, the Audit Services Division has a responsibility to monitor and follow up on audit recommendations to ensure city agencies address audit findings through appropriate corrective action and to aid us in planning future audits.

In our follow-up effort for the Denver County Court “IT General Controls” audit report issued in August 2018, we determined the court fully implemented one recommendation and did not implement another it agreed to in the original audit report. Although court officials disagreed with a third recommendation, we learned they did take some action to address the concerns.

However, despite the court’s efforts, auditors determined the risks associated with the audit team’s initial findings have not been fully mitigated. As a result, the Audit Services Division may revisit these risk areas in future audits to ensure the city takes appropriate corrective action.

The Highlights page in this report provides background and summary information about the original audit and the completed follow-up effort. Following the Highlights page is a detailed implementation status update for each recommendation.

I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the personnel at Denver County Court who assisted us throughout the audit and the follow-up process. For any questions, please feel free to contact me at 720-913-5000..
