The Department of System-wide Internal Audit provides objective, independent, and accurate assessments of management's activities to the Audit Committee of the Board of Regents. These assessments include but are not limited to promoting effective internal controls, consulting management on specific issues, and conducting reviews of various processes and functions. By reporting directly to the Audit Committee of the Board of Regents, we maintain our independence, allowing us to be objective in planning, performing, and reporting the conclusions of our engagements.
The Department of System-wide Internal Audit assists in the coordination of audit activities with the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury, campus internal auditors, and with any other external auditors. We also conduct investigations of any reports of fraud, waste, or abuse within the TBR system.
