Martin D. Masterpole, City Auditor
“Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk.”
– The Institute of Internal Auditors
My pledge to you, the taxpayers of the City of Syracuse, is that I will serve as an independent voice in City government.
As an independently elected official, my department serves as the check and balance of the Syracuse Common Council and Mayor's Administration. My main goal in my oversight capacity is to ensure integrity and accountability of all City employees.
Our mission is to enhance the public's confidence in City Government by providing an internal outlet to address fraud, waste or abuse.
My office will work with department heads to ensure:
There are internal controls in place to avoid waste in City government.
City assets are protected.
Transparency, efficiency and effectiveness are present within each department.
City employees are deserving of the public's trust.
I am honored to serve the City of Syracuse as City Auditor and look forward to a successful and challenging term.
