The function of the Office of Internal Audit most directly
aligns itself with the University's mission by contributing to the fulfillment
of the goals and objectives articulated under the financial responsibility
theme of the University's 2000-2005 Strategic Plan.
Through internal reviews and audits, the Office of
Internal Audit aims to help ensure that internal controls exist and are
functioning properly at the University of Scranton. These controls help ensure
that (1) University resources and interests are safeguarded, (2) University
policies and external laws and regulations are complied with, and (3)
University operations are efficient and management practices are sound.
The Office of Internal Audit works with the University's
external auditing firm. Annually, the Office of Internal Audit performs
external audit assignments related to the University's mandatory financial, OMB
Circular A-133, and retirement plans audits.
