Internal Audit

Our mission

Our mission is to enhance and protect organizational value by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice and insight. Our team is housed in UVic's Health and Wellness Building.

What we do

Internal Audit helps the university ensure it is operating effectively, efficiently, and within established laws, regulations, policies and delegated authorities.

To fulfill our mandate, our team prepares and delivers a risk-based rolling 3-year Audit Plan. The plan includes operational and financial reviews, IT controls and security focused engagements, advisory projects, and special investigations.


We report functionally to the Audit Committee of the Board of Governors and administratively to the Vice-President, Finance & Operations.

Our team is authorized to have unrestricted access to all university functions, records, property, and personnel within the scope of the Board of Governors.
