Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh Internal Audit Department website. This website was developed to provide you with information about our department and the services we provide to the University community.
The Internal Audit Department provides independent, objective assurance and consulting services to the University community. Internal Audit assists University Management and the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees in identifying, avoiding and mitigating risks by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluating and improving the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.
On this website, you will be able to find details on the department's mission, types of audits we perform, our audit process, the typical scope of one of our audits, common audit findings and our current staff. We have also provided you with information and links related to the University's internal control environment including the University's Sarbanes-Oxley efforts and the Control Self-Assessment tool used by departments. You will find details on how to "report a concern" to the University's hotline, "AlertLine". Finally, we have provided you with helpful links to both internal and external websites, such as the University's policies and procedures.
We hope you find the information provided on this website to be useful and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.
