Mission of Internal Audit The mission of the UT Tyler Office of Audit and Consulting Services is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve operations.
Where Does Audit Fit in the Big Picture Independent Objective Add Value
First Line of Defense… What do you need to do? Strong Internal Controls: 1.Policies and Procedures Manuals… who is responsible for what and when? 2.Segregation of Duties… two sets of eyes! 3.Account Reconciliations… Are YOUR numbers really right? 4.Documentation Maintained 5.Password Protection
How Do We Decide What to Audit? Assist departments in identifying risks and controls and creating a risk footprint considering impact and probability Combine all risk footprints into one UT Tyler risk footprint Identify required audits Allocate hours to high risk areas as determined by the Institutional Audit Committee and UT System Reserve hours for training and consulting
