Internal Audit

The role of Internal Audit is to provide independent assurance that an organisation's risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. Internal auditors deal with issues that are fundamentally important to the survival and prosperity of an organisation. Unlike external auditors they look beyond financial risks and statements to consider wider issues such as the organisations reputation, growth, its impact on the environment and the way it treats its employees. 

Internal Audit at the University of Birmingham is provided by a small in-house team, supported by a specialist computer audit function provided by PwC.
