The prime responsibility of the internal audit service is to provide the Board of Governors with assurance on the adequacy and effectiveness of risk management, control and governance arrangements. Accordingly the internal audit service must consider the whole of the University’s risk management, control and governance arrangements, including all its operations, resources, staff, services and responsibilities for other bodies.
The internal audit service is accountable to the Board of Governors through the Audit Committee for the performance of the service and should report audit findings to relevant managers drawing the attention of the Audit Committee to key issues and recommendations.
The University does not maintain an in-house internal audit service.
The Internal Audit service is provided by Deloitte LLP and the Director of Corporate Services manages the day to day operational link with Deloitte
