Internal Auditing is a proprietary facility of the university. It provides independent and objective inspection and consulting services. This is reflected in the fact that the staff unit reports directly to the Chancellor. The responsibilities and duties of Internal Auditing cover the entire university (with the exception of the University Medical Center).
In general, Internal Auditing acts on the instruction of the Chancellor and can carry out audits at its own discretion given reasonable suspicion. It is an independent body and has an unrestricted right to information, although it does not carry directive authority towards the university's employees.
Internal Auditing is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to all issues of which it becomes aware during audits.
The activities performed by the staff unit are based on integrity, objectivity, competence and confidentiality.
