The Department of Observation and Internal Audit was founded in the beginning of 2009 as part of the vision and efforts of the Municipality council and the Mayor's support.
From the beginning of the establishment of the department, the internal system has developed a collection of policies, procedures and professional internal audit work. The department aims to carry out the essentials of internal audit, assess the performance of sections and departments in the municipality and serve as a basis for services of the Municipality council.
