Mission Statement

The mission of Internal Audit is to enhance and protect organizational value by providing independent, risk-based, and objective assurance, advice, and insight. Internal audit helps UVU accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of governance, risk management, and control processes.  

We aim to be a world-class internal audit department.  We do so by providing high-quality, value-adding services to UVU.

Who We Are

The Internal Audit Department works for UVU. The Director of Internal Audit reports functionally to the Board of Trustees Audit Committee, and administratively to the Vice President of Planning, Budget and Finance. Audit Committee is an independent, management oversight function.

Internal Audit is responsible for carrying out an annual risk assessment, and conducting audits of UVU entities based on the results of that assessment. We strive to add value in those areas through a systematic review of operations, revenues and expenses, assets, compliance with related laws and policies, etc. Based on this testing, we work with management to find ways to improve operations, prevent misconduct, safeguard assets, or better meet compliance expectations. Internal Audit has been authorized to conduct audits of any UVU entity.

Our work, including planned audits, is prioritized as follows:

1) Utah Board of Higher Education's required audits

2) Tips and EthicsPoint reports

3) Requested and transfer audits

4) Planned audits
