Audit and Risk Management

Internal Audit is an independent monitoring and review activity which aims to add significant value to the quality, cost effectiveness and accountability of the University's educational, research and business activities.

Internal Audit's purpose, scope, authority and reporting arrangements are defined by the Internal Audit Charter.

Key Internal Audit responsibilities include:

  • Implementing an annual program of audits and reviews:
    • All divisions, faculties, controlled entities and key business process owners may expect to have some contact with Internal Audit during the period of the triennial audit program.
  • Assisting with the development of the University's risk management framework:
    • As components of this framework are implemented, Internal Audit will have an ongoing role in monitoring compliance with the framework's administrative requirements and in assessing the overall effectiveness of risk management practices.
  • Investigating allegations of fraud, corruption and maladministration; and
  • Facilitating fraud awareness training across the University community.
