City Employees' Accomplishment Creates Unique "Shop" in Town

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) recently announced the certifications of two City employees, Miguel A. Montiel and Christine L. Esqueda.

Montiel, who recently joined the Internal Audit team in December 2006, was named as a Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) by the Institute. The CIA designation is awarded to internal audit professionals who have met the rigorous requirements of the IIA's CIA program, including a four-part examination, as well as high standards of character, education and experience.

Esqueda, a City employee since September 2005, completed the Certification in Control Self-Assessment® (CCSA®). The exam measures knowledge of the fundamentals, process and integration of control self assessment - a tool that can assist auditors, management and others examine and assess business processes and control effectiveness within their organizations.

The City of El Paso is proud to have such an accomplished Internal Audit Division in that the Division now has (5) five Certified Internal Auditors on staff, with one being CCSA certified. No other Internal Audit "shop" in the El Paso area has this type of expertise on their staff.
