The Audit Committee is 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 is responsible for monitoring the implementation of any corrective actions arising from the audits.

On January 1, 2018, a new California Assembly Bill (AB 805) required the creation of a new SANDAG Policy Advisory Committee, known as the Audit Committee, and an independent performance auditor position. Implementation of the requirements included approval of Board Policy No. 39: Audit Policy Advisory Committee and Audit Activities, which specifies the functions of the Audit Committee and the agency’s independent performance auditor, and appointment of members of the Audit Committee.
