Overview  An audit is an official examination and analysis of an entity or activity to determine compliance, effectiveness, efficiency, sufficiency, accuracy, etc. Our internal auditing process is an independent objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve FAMU's operations.

DoA Audit Service

Through our audits we aspire to enhance and protect the value of FAMU and its stakeholders by providing excellence in risk-based and objective assurance, advice, and insight through the promotion of accountability, integrity, and efficiency.

We provide valuable support to FAMU by performing independent and objective reviews, risk management activities, coordination of external audits, and reporting to the Audit and Compliance Committee and responsible administrative and academic officers so that corrective actions, risk response plans, and enhancements can be initiated. Our objective is to assist the Board of Trustees, President, and University management in the effective discharge of their responsibilities.

We accomplish our Internal Audit objectives by developing an Annual Audit Plan that specifies all work that the Division of Audit intends to do during the fiscal year.  This plan is approved by the Board of Trustees’ Committee on Audit and Compliance and is modified as needed to address critical issues that arise and management has deemed urgent during the course of the year.

Our audits are performed in accordance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing of the Institute of Internal Auditors.
