Topic:  A RESOLUTION TO RENEW THE FAUQUIER COUNTY INDEPENDENT AUDITOR CONTRACT #29-98C

 

Topic Description:

The current contract with Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates provides for renewals.  There are several compelling reasons to renew, as follows:   

- Fauquier County will have a new Finance Director who will need to regularly confer with the   County's Independent Auditor. 

- The new School Superintendent will need to confer with the auditors to clarify established   processes and procedures.  These conversations have already begun. 

- Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates has assigned a senior partner (David Hughes) to lead the audit  team for  Fauquier in recognition of  county staff transitions.  Mr. Hughes has more than a decade of  direct working experience with Fauquier County. 

- Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates performs more County audits in Virginia than any other   accounting firm.
