FIT’s internal audit function is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to support the College’s teaching, research, co-curricular, and student service operations by assisting management in the effective discharge of their responsibilities, adding value and improving FIT’s operations. The mission of internal audit is to enhance and protect organizational value by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice, and insight. The Internal Audit Department helps FIT accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of governance, risk management, and control processes.
The Chief Audit Executive (Executive Director of Internal Controls and Management Analysis ) will have unrestricted access to, and communicate and interact directly with, the Board Audit Committee, including in private meetings without management present.
Independence and Objectivity
The Executive Director of Internal Controls and Management Analysis will ensure that the Internal Audit Department remains free from all conditions that threaten the ability of internal auditors to carry out their responsibilities in an unbiased manner, including matters of audit selection, scope, procedures, frequency, timing, and report content.
Internal auditors will maintain an unbiased mental attitude that allows them to perform engagements objectively and in such a manner that they believe in their work product, that no quality compromises are made, and that they do not subordinate their judgment on audit matters to others.
In order to foster objectivity, Internal Audit has neither direct responsibility for, nor authority over, any of the operations or activities, which it reviews. Internal Audit may however serve in an advisory role in support of management planning and/or activities in such areas as policies, procedures, and corrective action plans.
