About the Office of Internal Audit

The Office of Internal Audit was established by the Board of Regents in 2014. Our role is to provide independent objective assurance and insight on the effectiveness and efficiency of governance, risk management, and internal control processes. The Office of Internal Audit reports to the Board of Regents, through the Audit and Risk Committee.

As an independent office within the University, the Office of Internal Audit is guided by the Internal Audit Charter and the Internal Audit policy. We perform internal audits, consulting, advisory, and investigative services for the University. Our work is completed in accordance with professional standards as set out by the Institute of Internal Auditors.

The Office of Internal Audit provides the University with an independent view on processes, providing the Board of Regents with evidence based assurance of management operations. We identify efficiencies, best practices, and assess the control environment, to assist the University is achieving objectives.

Although, the Office of Internal Audit has a wide mandate (financial and non-financial), there are many other audit functions initiated and/or managed through other areas of the University
