           Town of Saugus Public Notices          
goldline350px.jpg


Saugus Board of Selectmen are accepting applications for appointment
to the Town of Saugus Audit Committee.
 
These are volunteer / non-paid positions for Saugus residents. 
The Saugus Audit Committee will consist of 3 people who have
a background in finance, preferably MA Municipal Finance.
Additional information may be obtained in the Selectmen’s Office.
Those interested may submit letter of interest/resume
no later than October 10, 2014 to:
           Saugus Board of Selectmen - Saugus Town Hall
           298 Central Street, Saugus, MA 01906


About the Saugus Audit Committee
The Department of Revenue recommends that the Board of Selectmen
create an audit committee.  Given recent developments associated with the
Town of Saugus’ finances, this would be a prudent step towards financial
transparency.
 The committee would be appointed by the Board of Selectmen,
consisting of three people who have a background in finance, preferably
Massachusetts municipal finance.
 It is also recommended that said committee
not serve on any other board or as a town meeting member, in an effort to
serve as independent advisors to the Board of Selectmen and the Town of Saugus.

The committee would be charged with reviewing management letters and
monitoring the Town’s progress in their annual financial audit, including town
responses to issues raised.
 Periodically, but at least once a year at the conclusion
of the annual audit report, the committee shall report its findings to the Selectmen,
town manager, and other officials of Saugus as necessary.
 Responsibility to
formulate responses and an action plan would fall to the town manager, with the
input of financial officers.
 An audit committee should also be involved in the
procurement of auditing services, determining in advance the requirements and
objectives of the audit, and recommending the eventual individual auditor or audit
firm.
 This committee would further recommend to the Board of Selectmen areas
where the outside audit firm should conduct tests and reviews of various town
finances during the annual audit review process.
