Internal Audit

About Internal Audit

Definitions of Internal Audit, a guide to the audit process, and further information.

Internal Audit provides senior management of the University with an objective assessment of internal control systems. It covers all the activities of the University's operations, resources, staff, services and responsibilities. It is independent of all functional areas of the University. Internal Audit reports directly to the Audit and Risk Committee to assure them that risks are managed effectively and controls are working as planned.

The 'Internal Audit Guide', below, explains what it means when your department is audited, and answers FAQs. The 'Background Information' page provides a more in-depth explanation of what Internal Audit is, and what it does.
