Internal Audit is an independent appraisal function which examines and evaluates university activities as a service to university management personnel at all levels. Our mission is to provide objective, independent assurance and consulting services that are responsive to the university stakeholders.

Internal audit assists the university to accomplish its mission by bringing a disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, internal control and the governance process. Internal audits examine and evaluate systems of internal control, the efficiency and effectiveness of operations, compliance with State of Arizona, Arizona Board of Regents and Northern Arizona University policies, and compliance with good business practices. The emphasis is on:

  • identifying actual or potential risks,
  • providing corrective guidance,
  • making recommendations to management to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of internal controls, and
  • helping to identify and analyze problems and opportunities.

Our goal is to issue audit reports that enhance the public accountability and stewardship of Northern Arizona University programs and operations by determining whether public resources are properly safeguarded, used properly and prudently and used efficiently, economically and effectively.

Internal Audit reports to the Audit Committee of the Arizona Board of Regents, with a dotted line reporting relationship to Vice President for Finance and Administration.
