Using an Audit as a Stepping Stone to Improved Program Management
What do you do after an audit is complete? Join Annie Meyer, CPCP, as she shares how the regional government of Portland, Oregon, turned a 2009 internal audit of its Procurement Card program into a menu for improvement. The auditor was viewed as an ally, and the audit as an opportunity to identify program weaknesses and build a better, stronger program. Learn how Metro was able to strengthen the card program and add safeguards for enhanced workability and increased accountability based on audit findings.

About the Speaker
Annie Meyer, CPCP, became the Procurement Card Program Administrator at Metro Regional Government (Portland, Oregon) more than six years ago. She brought an extensive background in accounting garnered through small business ownership and work experience in the medical and insurance fields. Since then, she has organized and supervised the growth of Metro's P-Card program and attained her Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) designation in 2007. Using the knowledge she's gained through her association with NAPCP, she's built a healthy program that survived an internal audit last year. Even though the audit uncovered a few issues, Annie was able to build on the recommendations to make the program even stronger.
Overall Feedback: Mixed feedback, but most attendees were positive.
