Independence is essential to the integrity and quality of internal auditing. Organizational status should be sufficient to assure a broad range of audit coverage, and provide adequate consideration of and effective action on the audit findings and recommendations. The Director of Internal Auditing reports to the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees Audit Committee. The Office of Internal Auditing staff consists of the Director, Lead Auditor, Internal Auditor II, and an Information Systems Auditor. Credentials, experiences, and competencies of the OIA Staff are appropriate to the areas of responsibility.
