Hicks hall exterior 


The mission of the Office of Internal Auditing (OIA) at the University of North Florida is to enhance and protect UNF's values by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice, insight and consulting services to the University community.  It is an independent assurance function which was established to examine and evaluate University activities as a service to management and stakeholders. 

The OIA reports to the President of the University of North Florida and the Chair, Audit and Compliance Committee of the Board of Trustees. This organizational structure maintains the department's independence and promotes broad audit coverage.

The vision of the Office of Internal Auditing is to be a respected advisor and advocate for management to evaluate and improve practices for secure operational effectiveness.  In doing so, the department will strive to be the go-to consultant in higher education best practices.

Internal Auditing provides Insight, Assurance and Objectivity:

  • Insight

    Internal auditing is a catalyst for improving an organization's effectiveness and efficiency by providing insight and recommendations based on analyses and assessments of data and business processes.

  • Assurance

    Internal auditing provides assurance on the organization's governance, risk management and control processes to help the organization achieve its strategic, operations, financial and compliance objectives.

  • Objectivity

    With commitment to integrity and accountability, internal auditing provides value to governing bodies and senior management as an objective source of independent advice.
