Types of Audit Reviews

Departmental / Unit Audits

Departmental reviews first establish the significant risks in the unit and then determine if there are processes in place to manage those risks. In addition, the review will determine if the department is complying with University or other applicable policies and procedures. The review will also assist the department in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of its administration should any such opportunities be identified during the audit.

Functional Audits

Review of processes across all University departments. Examples would include reviews of the procurement card system or travel expenditures to ensure University policies and procedures are adhered to.

Special Reviews and Investigations

In some instances management may request special reviews to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of specific processes. These requests may be a result of changes in processes or due to specific concerns that have been raised.
