The FIU Office of Internal Audit serves as an independent appraisal function for the University. Our audits of the University’s colleges and departments evaluate financial processes, internal controls, and compliance with laws, rules, and regulations with a view towards ensuring that services are appropriately delivered in the most efficient, effective, and economic manner possible. Our Office is also responsible for conducting investigations for all allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse and any whistleblower complaints.
Recognizing the need for independence, the Chief Audit Executive has direct reporting responsibility to the University’s Board of Trustees’ Audit and Compliance Committee. Also, the Audit staff has unrestricted access to all persons, records, systems, and facilities of the University.
In order to accomplish our work, we prepare a risk based annual audit plan that is reviewed and approved by the Finance and Audit Committee. We perform our audit work in accordance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing adopted by the Institute of Internal Auditors.
We are located on the fourth floor of the Campus Support Complex building at the Modesto A. Madique Campus. Contact us at 305-348-2107.
