Office of Internal Auditing

The Office of Internal Auditing (OIA) at the University of North Florida is an independent appraisal function which was established to examine and evaluate University activities as a service to management and stakeholders. Our mission is to provide an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity that will add value and improve UNF's operations.


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 OIA has a charter.


Our vision is to be a respected advisor and positive change agent to assist management in maintaining consistent practices for secure operational effectiveness. In doing so, Internal Audit will see on-going relationships throughout campus to be a go-to consultant in higher education best practices.

  • 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.
