Internal Audit

Internal Audit

The Louisiana Tech Office of Internal Audit assists management in achieving University financial and operating goals. It is our responsibility to evaluate the adequacy of the system of internal control and verify the existence of University assets and ensure that proper safeguards are maintained to protect them from loss. Internal Audit makes recommendations to management to improve internal controls based on testing and analysis.

Internal Audit also identifies operational opportunities for cost savings/revenue improvements and evaluates whether existing policies, procedures, and practices are useful and effective, and economically justified. Internal Audit is also available as an in-house consultant on internal control matters and to provide guidance on control aspects of new systems and procedures.

This site will provide you information about who we are, what we do, and what you can expect if a review is conducted in your area. We are here to help you become more effective and efficient in the operations of your areas.

Mission

The mission of the Office of Internal Audit is to assist University management and the Board of Supervisors in the effective discharge of their responsibilities by furnishing them with analyses and recommendations concerning activities reviewed. These recommendations will come from operational examination and evaluation of University departments and units on a periodic basis to ensure that the University’s assets are adequately safeguarded, the University entities are operating efficiently and effectively, and the University is in compliance with Federal, State, and University regulations.
