Our Services

Audits

Internal Audit Services (IAS) is responsible for evaluating the internal controls environment for financial transactions, operational activities, compliance objectives and information technology infrastructure. Our engagements include reviews of specific business units or specialized activities as well as reviews for key business processes spanning multiple stakeholder entities and University-wide activities. Our goal is to provide objective, valuable and respected service to each of our clients by identifying and communicating opportunities to increase business process efficiency and strengthen the internal control environment.

Advisory Services

Each year, IAS receives various requests from campus management for services that are more advisory in nature than traditional audits. Management advisory services allow IAS the opportunity to partner with management to identify solutions for management issues as they arise, and to ensure consideration of related internal control issues in the process.

External Audit Coordination

IAS is the external audit liaison for UC Davis.  IAS coordinates communications with external audit agencies who visit UC Davis to perform audits of extramurally funded awards.

Investigations

When charged by the UCD Locally Designated Official, Internal Audit Services conducts investigations into suspected financial irregularities whether reported by whistleblowers, uncovered in the course of regular audits, or based upon concerns conveyed by management.
