Internal Audit Services

We are committed to excellence, committed to you and your goals.

The mission of Internal Audit ServicesĀ is to help the Corporation protect University resources and enhance the achievement of enterprise-wide strategies by evaluating and monitoring risks, processes and policies significant to the University's mission.

Internal auditing at Brown University is an independent, objective assurance and consultative activity designed to add value to the organization. The internal audit program is intended to assist the University in accomplishing its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of risk management, control, and governance processes.

Internal Audit Services evaluates the academic and administrative process of departments, units, and functions at the University in order to offer recommendations for improvement in efficiency and effectiveness.
We design our engagements to be a collaboration between internal audit and your unit. Open communication is a part of this partnership. We commit to keeping you informed of our progress throughout the engagement.
The Chief University Auditor functionally reports to the Corporation Committee on Risk and Audit and administratively to the Chief Risk Officer and the Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration. In order to maintain independence, Internal Audit Services does not have operating responsibilities for management processes or internal controls.
The following resources have been compiled to provide additional guidance throughout the audit process.
