How we plan our Internal Audit Programme

In liaison with University staff :

An Audit Needs Assessment is produced which lists all of the auditable units within the institution. This is updated annually.

This enables a five-year Strategic Plan to be produced, based on our assessment of risk.

This in turn allows us to produce the AUDIT Annual Programme.

The annual programme comprises reviews of :

  • Corporate, operational and financial systems;
  • Schools and departmental accounting systems;
  • Value for Money subjects;
  • Follow up audits.

The Audit Committee of each institution reviews and approves the AUDIT planning documents in June each year and makes appropriate recommendations to its Council.

We also welcome suggestions from colleagues regarding subjects for inclusion in future audit programmes.
