The Internal Audit Department is a participant in the County of Orange "Labor / Management Committee" (LMC) program in collaboration with the Auditor/Controller Department. The LMC is a team of employees and managers working together at the department level to make the County of Orange a more progressive workplace. This is accomplished by providing a monthly forum where they can freely express their ideas about improving working condition and processes to achieve creative solutions to departmental workplace issues. The program has been adopted by all departments in the County and has been widely successful. One staff member represent us
