The Internal Audit Department was formed in 1981. The name changed in 1987 to the Internal Audit Office and again in 1996 to University Audit Services. In 2014, it was renamed the Office of the Internal Auditor.
The Office of the Internal Auditor (OTIA) is composed of a team of chartered accountants with experience in public practice, industry, and the university environment. Its mission is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve University operations and to help the University accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.
The scope of the work of the OTIA encompasses all University units, operations and services, and is intended to determine whether the University's network of risk management, control (including computerized information controls and security), and governance processes, as represented by management, are appropriately designed and implemented effectively. In order to achieve these objectives, the OTIA will conduct audits to determine whether: (1) Risks are appropriately identified and managed; (2) Significant financial, managerial, and operating information is accurate, reliable and timely; (3) The University’s major policies and procedures are documented and kept current; and that the Internal control system is adequate to ensure adherence, in a material way, to the policies and procedures; (4) Resources are acquired economically and efficiently; (5) Significant legislative or regulatory issues impacting the University are recognized and addressed appropriately; and (6) University assets, including information, are adequately protected.
