At Tuesday’s Study Session, Brighton City Council directed city staff to begin the Request for Proposal (RFP) process to select an independent firm to conduct a forensic audit of the city’s Utilities funds. Council requested the audit to review the city’s Utilities funds dating back to 2008.
This follows a July 2 meeting where City Council voted 8-0 authorizing city staff to pursue hiring an outside, independent firm to conduct a forensic audit of the Utilities funds.
The next steps will include City Council establishing a detailed scope of work to include for the RFP, followed by the RFP bid process which generally takes approximately 8-10 weeks, according to Interim Finance Director Maria Ostrom. Once the RFP process is complete, staff will bring their recommendations to City Council for the bid to formally be awarded and work to begin.
On July 9, City Council was presented with the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for 2018. The City of Brighton received an unmodified opinion with no proposed adjustments. To review the entire CAFR visit https://www.brightonco.gov/245/Financial-Reports.
