About the office

The mission of University Internal Audit (IA) is to assist the management of California State University, Los Angeles (Cal State LA) and its auxiliaries to effectively carry out their responsibilities to establish an appropriate control environment and make decisions concerning University resources, both financial and non-financial. By performing operational, compliance, and/or internal reviews, IA provides management with objective and independent information and assurance about university activities, the effectiveness of procedures, and the adequacy of internal controls.

Internal Audit is also the campus liaison for any audits, reviews, and investigations conducted by the Chancellor’s Office Audit & Advisory Services (A&AS), as well as audits and reviews performed by external agencies such as the California State Auditor and State Controller’s Office, among others.

As the campus liaison, Internal Audit assists campus departments with responding to internal control questionnaires, reviewing draft reports for accuracy, assisting management with the development of corrective action plans to address recommendations, and reviewing and monitoring the implementation of corrective action plans.

External Audit Notice Requirement:

Please notify the Internal Audit Department if you receive notification of an audit, review, or investigation by an external entity or reviewing agency.
