The purposes of the audit committee are:
- Evaluating management's assessment of the body's system of internal controls (4-35-105(1))
- Informing the comptroller of the treasury of the results of assessment and controls to reduce the risk of fraud (4-35-105 (4))
Management conducts a formal risk assessment of its institution to be approved by the audit committee.
The Tennessee Board of Regents is committed to the responsible stewardship of its resources.
