Audit & Assurance

Reporting to the Audit and Compliance Committee of Council, but with direct access to the Vice-Chancellor as needed, the Audit & Assurance mandate relates to the conduct and oversight of a program of audits covering a range of efficiency, effectiveness, probity, compliance and information system issues.

Internal auditing provides management at all levels with objective information, comment and advice on the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations of the University relative to its strategic directions and governance processes. Embodied in this concept is the review of compliance with legislation, standards and internal and external policies and guidelines.

The Curtin Annual Audit Work Plans provide a schedule of planned activity. The process of each internal audit is to review current practices and measure these against principles of good practices. The intent is to improve awareness of key issues and provide benchmarks towards best practice in each area.
