About the Audit & Finance Committee

The Audit & Finance Committee ("Committee") is established by the Board Members ("Board") of the New York City Housing Authority ("NYCHA") for the primary purpose of assisting the Board in overseeing:
  • The integrity of NYCHA's financial reporting, including assessing the Independent Auditor's qualifications and independence;
  • The adequacy of NYCHA's internal controls and IT controls, including the performance of NYCHA's internal audit function; and
  • Compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements.

The Committee should facilitate open communication among the Independent Auditor, the Audit Department, Executive Management, the Finance Department and all Program Departments.

The Audit & Finance Committee currently consists of four members: two are Board members and the other two are independent members (neither NYCHA employees nor Board members): (1) Mr. Victor Gonzalez (Vice Chair of NYCHA; (2) Mr. Matt Gewolb; (3) Mr. Mark Kaplan; and (3) Mr. Richard Kuo.
