Request for SANDAG Audit Committee Public Member Applications

Application Period: March 9 through April 20, 2018

SANDAG is seeking three public members and potential alternates to serve on its recently authorized Audit Committee. The three public members will serve with two SANDAG Board members for a two-year term, beginning in approximately June 2018. The SANDAG Audit Committee will be responsible for making recommendations to the SANDAG Board of Directors regarding the hiring and oversight of the work of the SANDAG independent performance auditor, the SANDAG annual audit plan, the firm to perform the SANDAG annual financial statement audits, and internal control guidelines for the agency. The Audit Committee also will be responsible for monitoring the implementation of any corrective actions arising from the audits.

Public member applicants must possess independence, experience, and technical expertise including, but not limited to, knowledge of accounting, auditing, and financial reporting. Applicants also must meet minimum professional standards, which include ten years of experience as a certified public accountant, a certified internal auditor, or ten years of other professional accounting, auditing, financial, or legal experience in audit management.

Public member applicants will be considered by a screening committee composed of one Board member, a chief financial officer or finance director from a SANDAG member agency, and at least one outside financial expert. The screening committee will review applications, interview prospective candidates if necessary, and submit recommended nominees to the SANDAG Board of Directors for approval.

Applicants are asked to submit the following items:

  • Application for Audit Committee Public Member Appointment
  • Resume
  • Completed Form 700 to determine the likelihood for potential conflicts of interest
  • (For the purposes of the application process, your typed name will suffice for your signature on the Form 700 documents.)

    SANDAG Board Policy No. 039, Audit Policy Advisory Committee and Audit Activities, and the text of enabling legislation, AB 805, are included here for reference.
