Internal Audit Services provides independent and objective auditing and consultation services designed to add value and improve the university’s operations, and to help the university accomplish its objectives by evaluating the effectiveness of risk management, internal control and governance processes.
Internal Audit reports administratively to the president of the university and functionally to the Idaho State Board of Education Audit Committee. The structure of the reporting relationships assure departmental independence, promotes comprehensive audit coverage and assures appropriate consideration of audit recommendations.
Internal Audit performs routine audits of departments and systems throughout our Moscow campus and statewide locations. Our audits are designed to address risks in the following areas:
- Financial stewardship;
- Compliance with policies, laws and regulations;
- Efficient and effective operations;
- Maintaining the university’s positive public image and credibility; and
- Achieving the university’s strategic mission and goals.
Internal Audit conducts investigations of potential violations of the university’s ethics policy, which includes fraud, waste and abuse. Read more about this topic under our Confidential Hotline section.
