 1. Staff from the City Auditor’s Office will present a Performance Audit: Visit KC Can Improve Reporting to City and Address Conflict of Interest Issues.
 
 Doug Jones, City Auditors Office, presented the performance audit presentation. The audit objective was to determine whether to Visit KC performance, and financial data are precise and useful to the city. The city's contract with Visit KC has used a the basis for determining performance measure and financial reporting requirements the scope covered calendar 2017 and 2018. The audit was conducted following government auditing standards. State Statute requires the City to use 40% of the funds collected from the City's Convention and Tourism Tax to contract with a non-profit entity formed for the purpose of promoting the city as a convention visitors and tourism center. Visit KC is the nonprofit entity that the City contracts with to promote the city as a convention and tourism destination. In 2018 the city provided 11 million dollars to fund Visit KC's activities. The Mayor with council consent appoints half of the Visit KC board the other half selected by committee. The audit shows performance data is not always clear and useful. The contract requires comparing performance targets to performance measures. 4 of 12 performance measures compared to destinations in 2017 and 2018. In 2018 City staff requested Visit KC comply with reporting requirements. In 2018 Visit KC provided quarterly reports on the 12 Performance measures but did not compare all the rules to targets. The City's only enforcement mechanism to ensure Visit KC's compliance with performance on the contract is the ability to terminate the agreement.
