    if you want?

    Is this sentence correct?

    Alice has asked me to check with you if you want John to conduct an audit of the accounts.

    You could also change "if" to "whether." I'd use "whether" but the distinction is no longer considered very important.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
