Delivering professional risk, compliance, assurance, information compliance and information security services across the University
Assurance involves the coordination and gathering of information and evidence for the Audit and Scrutiny Committee and for Council about the adequacy and effectiveness of the University’s policies and processes, and about its compliance with its statutory obligations. The Audit and Scrutiny Committee and Council rely on this evidence in discharging their legal and regulatory responsibilities. One of the major sources of assurance on which the Audit and Scrutiny Committee and Council rely is internal audit.
