Inspector General

Organization: South Florida Water Management District
Close Date: The first review of resumes will be October 14, 2011.

Job Description:

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), based in West Palm Beach, is a regional governmental agency that oversees the water resources in the southern half of Florida, covering 16 counties from Orlando to the Florida Keys and serving a population of 7.7 million residents. It is the oldest and largest of the State's five water management districts. Created in 1949, the agency is responsible for managing and protecting water resources of South Florida by balancing and improving water quality, flood control, natural systems and water supply.

SFWMD is directed by nine Governing Board members who set policy for the agency. They reside within the agency's 16-county region and represent a cross section of interests including the environment, agriculture, local government, recreation and business. Governing Board members are unpaid citizen volunteers appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. The Governing Board appoints the Executive Director and the Inspector General. SFWMD employs 1,647 FTEs and has a FY 2012 budget of $576.1 M.

The Office of Inspector General's mission is to provide citizens living within SFWMD boundaries with an independent view of operations through objective and professional audits, investigations, reviews and evaluations of the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of taxpayer-financed programs.

Florida Statutes authorize the Governing Board to appoint an Inspector General whose scope of work is unrestricted. Accordingly, the Office of Inspector General is independent of District management and cannot be prevented "from initiating, carrying out, or completing any audit or investigation." The Office is also responsible for advising on performance measures, standards and procedures for evaluating District programs, and assessing the reliability and validity of information provided to measure District programs.

To ensure that state agency audits are performed in accordance with applicable auditing standards, the inspector general or the director of auditing within the inspector general's office shall possess the following qualifications:
(a) A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a major in accounting, or with a major in business which includes five courses in accounting, and 5 years of experience as an internal auditor or independent post auditor, electronic data processing auditor, accountant, or any combination thereof. The experience shall at a minimum consist of audits of units of government or private business enterprises, operating for profit or not for profit; or (b) A master's degree in accounting, business administration, or public administration from an accredited college or university and 4 years of experience as required in paragraph (a); or
(c) A certified public accountant license issued pursuant to chapter 473 or a certified internal audit certificate issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors or earned by examination, and 4 years of experience as required in paragraph (a).
