Welcome to the Department of Internal Auditing at Georgia Tech. We hope that you find the resources on our Web site helpful and informative. We have aimed to create our Web site in a manner consistent with our mission, which is working with management, faculty, staff, and students to ensure that the Institute’s assets are effectively utilized and appropriately safeguarded. Our staff accomplishes this by:
- assisting management to assess the ever-increasing landscape of risk;
- performing evaluations of the effectiveness of risk mitigation procedures; and
- providing valuable feedback on the effectiveness of those processes.
We encourage you to visit our web site often as we will be continually updating the information, including sharing guidelines for internal control; best practices and risk mitigation procedures; and other material that we believe will be valuable to the Georgia Tech management, faculty, staff, and students. Note: Internal Auditing is now located in the Dancord Building located at 756 West Peachtree.
Internal Control Guide
The Department of Internal Auditing developed the Internal Control Guide (ICG) as a resource tool for the campus in instituting and maintaining effective internal controls within the framework of mitigating various areas of risk affecting Georgia Tech.
Departmental Review Guide
The Departmental Review Guide (DRG) is the product of an Institute-wide risk assessment to identify significant areas of risk facing Georgia Tech. The Department of Internal Auditing uses the DRG in each department on campus to assess the controls in place to ensure that these risks are appropriately mitigated and managed.
