The San Francisco City Services Auditor Division contracted with Sjoberg Evashenk Consulting to conduct an independent performance audit of Public Works’ Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER) 2014 Bond Program. The audit found that Public Works implemented many leading practices to manage and oversee the ESER 2014 Bond Program. However, it should take additional steps to improve management over certain pre-construction activities and fully comply with established bond accountability measures. Further, Public Works should enhance some of its current practices to provide greater transparency into project selection and prioritization as well as improve performance reporting of program and project progress towards meeting established goals.
