Organizational Structure

Independence is essential to the integrity and quality of internal auditing. Organizational status should be sufficient to assure a broad range of audit coverage, and provide adequate consideration of and effective action on the audit findings and recommendations. The Director of Internal Auditing reports administratively to the General Counsel and Vice Chancellor for Legal Affairs, Risk and Compliance and functionally to the Board of Trustees' Risk Management, Audit and Compliance Committee. The Office of Internal Auditing staff consists of the Director and three Internal Auditor positions. Credentials, experiences, and competencies of the OIA staff are appropriate to the areas of responsibility.
