The Department of Audit and Business Assurance was established by the College in order to undertake internal audit work in accordance with a formally approved plan.
In addition the Department carries out a range of other work, including business assurance, value for money and efficiency reviews, as well as providing support in relation to risk management and business continuity planning.
The Director of Audit and Business Assurance has a direct reporting line to the Head of Administration and College Secretary. Where necessary the Director also has direct access to the Principal, the Chair of the Audit and Compliance Committee and the Chair of College Council.
Internal audit is a mandatory function under the terms of the Financial Memorandum between the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and the College.
The Department has four members of staff and is based at the Guy’s Campus (4th Floor, Capital House).
