Harford County Public Schools Seeks Applicants for Audit Committee

The Board of Education of Harford County is seeking applications from interested county citizens to fill one opening on the school system’s Audit Committee. The purpose of the five-member committee is to assist the Board of Education in fulfilling its fiduciary oversight responsibilities. The committee serves as an independent and objective party to monitor the Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) financial reporting process and internal controls. The core function of the Audit Committee is to validate the internal auditor's strategy, plan, and performance and seek assurance that action is taken where necessary.

The Audit Committee consists of five members, two from the Board of Education and three atlarge Harford County citizens. Citizen members serve a three-year term and are appointed at staggered intervals. Members are appointed by the Board of Education and may serve two full terms. The committee meets at least quarterly to review the activities of the Office of Internal Audit. Regular attendance is important in maintaining the continuity and effectiveness of the committee. Audit Committee members serve without compensation.
