The Office of Internal Audit is designed to provide positive support to the Board of Regents, Chancellor, System executive management, and component management in the effective discharge of their responsibilities. The system-wide internal audit function is coordinated through the System Chief Audit Executive, who reports directly to the Finance and Audit Committee of the Board of Regents. Component-housed auditors are located in Alpine, Beaumont, Huntsville and San Marcos.
The mission of Internal Audit includes:
Providing the Board of Regents, Chancellor, Texas State University System executives, and component management with independent, objective evaluations regarding enterprise-wide risk management activities, internal controls, compliance, and governance processes.
Enhancing, system-wide, overall awareness of the importance of risk assessment, control, compliance, and governance processes.
Protecting organizational value by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice, and insight.
Ensuring that the system-wide internal audit function complies with the Institute of Internal Auditors' "International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing" and the Texas Internal Auditing Act.
The Systemwide Compliance Program is conducted under the auspices of the audit function and is designed to promote and encourage, through objective assessments and other activities, behavior and compliance with applicable policies, laws, and rules governing higher education.
