Key role

The Chief Internal Auditor provides an independent, objective assessment of the University’s (and any commercial client’s) control environment and the University’s overall risk management and governance processes.

Internal Audit’s scope includes all the University’s operations, resources, staff, services and responsibilities to other bodies, but does not extend to the academic process.
