Office of Internal Audit

We provide opportunities to improve DU operations.

Internal Audit

The Office of Internal Audit independently and objectively examines and evaluates activities at the University.  Our goal is to help identify opportunities to help DU improve operations and reduce risk, ultimately to increase the chances of meeting strategic goals.

Internal Audit selects areas of focus based on an organization-wide risk assessment designed to enable us to devote our resources to those areas that may be most meaningful to assess.  In those areas, we endeavor to provide an objective opinion as to whether procedures in place reasonably achieve the goals of key processes.  We work with the Chancellor and the Audit Committee to create an annual audit plan, which guides our process and helps us determine which areas of the University are the best candidates for our focus, given limited resources.

Our office also provides employees information about how to comply with relevant rules and regulatory requirements, and where to report suspicious or improper activity that may violate University policies.
