The role of internal audit is to provide independent assurance to University Senior Management and Council that the organisation's risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively.
Internal auditors deal with issues that are fundamentally important to the survival and prosperity of an organisation. Unlike external auditors they look beyond financial risks and statements to consider wider issues such as the organisations reputation, growth, its impact on the environment and the way it treats its employees.
Internal audit works in accordance with the HEFCW Audit Code of Practice which is contained within the Financial Management Code and accepted International Standards for the Professional Practice of Auditing.
Internal audit at Cardiff University is provided predominantly by an in-house team, supported by additional support via an external provider for areas of specialism such as IT audit.
