Our department provides audit and management services, information technology services and compliance services to the university and Health System communities. The full spectrum of the services we provide requires a broad range of knowledge and experience. Our staff includes those with backgrounds in accounting, auditing, business management, compliance, information technology, various clinical disciplines and the law. Our annual audit workplans are developed with input from senior management and approved by the University Board of Visitors and the Health System Board of Directors. The workplans include scheduled reviews and special projects. Our special project time allows us to respond to requests from management for assistance, conduct targeted operational reviews, evaluate selected compliance measures and performance and review allegations of improprieties. Our compliance activities are designed to meet the requirements set forth in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and, for the Health System, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General’s Elements of an Effective Compliance Program.
