The Wilson County Clerk of Superior Court’s Office was recently recognized by the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts for achieving the highest possible overall internal audit.
An effective rating means that the controls were evaluated as adequate, appropriate and effective to provide reasonable assurance that risks are being managed and objects are being met, according to state officials.
“Our clerk’s office received the highest rating,” said Wilson County Clerk of Court Andrew Whitley. “This is a testament to the great employees that we have working in this office who try to serve the needs of our community. We work hard every day to be a true community institution.”
Whitley said the results are based on the Administrative Office of the Courts Internal Audit Team’s comprehensive review of the Wilson County clerk’s office. The review, he said, included accounting accuracy, identifying fraud risks, file compliance, cash management, financial distributions, general ledger and safeguarding of state assets.
He said the internal audit team also reviewed bond procedures and how clerk of court employees protect criminal evidence.
