Internal Audit

The audit process

As a manager who has been contacted about an upcoming audit, it is normal that you should have some questions. We will be happy to answer these early in the process and we recommend that you read about the audit process in preparation.

  1. Before an audit.
  2. During an audit.
  3. After an audit.

Why we audit

Audits provide independent assurance that risk management, governance and internal control processes are adequate and operating effectively. The scope of internal auditing within the University is very broad and extends beyond financial risk.

We combine assurance with consulting by helping managers and governors evaluate how well systems and processes are working and advising on improvements where necessary.
