Internal Audit

Our Mission

Internal Audit:

  • provides independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve Queen's University's operations.
  • promotes a strong risk culture and provides a structured entity-wide approach to assessing, responding to, and monitoring potential risks to the university meeting its objectives.
  • helps Queen's accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluating and improving the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.

ConfidenceLine is an alternate, anonymous reporting mechanism that is available to Queen’s University faculty, students, staff, and administrators 24/7 online or by phone. It gives you access to an independent third party that also ensures your anonymity should you need to report fraud or financial misconduct.

Services and Scope

The Internal Audit Department is committed to promoting efficient and effective administration in support of the academic mission of the university. 

We achieve this through the provision of assurance services (e.g. independent and objective audit reviews), advisory services (e.g., assisting with system implementations), investigative services (e.g. special reviews) and consulting services (e.g. educational presentations). 

The scope of our services encompasses all University operations and locations. Our responsibilities are formally outlined in the Internal Audit Charter, which is approved by the Audit and Risk Committee.
