The Office of Internal Audit at Governors State University is an independent appraisal function which was established to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve the University’s operations.


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

The University Chief Internal Auditor reports directly to the University President and the Board of Trustees (30 ILCS 10/2002), and administratively to the Vice President for Administration and Finance.  The Budget and Finance Committee of the University Board of Trustees maintains oversight of the internal audit function.  This organizational structure achieves and maintains the degree of independence necessary to carry out the responsibilities of the internal audit activity.
