The Internal Audit Department is staffed by a campus-based team of University employees.
We deliver a programme of scheduled audits together with ad-hoc reviews across a broad spectrum of the University’s activities. This includes audits of financial systems and controls. Equally, a significant proportion of our work each year is focused on non-financial areas.
We are organisationally independent of all of the University’s operational activities. This lets us make impartial and effective professional judgements and recommendations. For management purposes we are linked with the Vice-Chancellor’s Office. We report to Council via the Audit Committee and the Vice-Chancellor.
In carrying out our work we follow professional standards and comply with the HEFCE Code of Practice on Accountability and Audit.
