Internal Audit Service
The Internal Audit Service (IAS) provides an independent appraisal of the University's activities. Our role is to give assurance on the arrangements for risk management, value for money, control and governance and to give advice to support the achievement of good practice.
IAS works in accordance with the HEFCE Audit Code of Practice (which is contained within the Memorandum of Assurance and Accountability) and other professional standards.
