The Department of Internal Auditing (DIA) provides independent and objective services to assist in the identification, evaluation, and mitigation of risk. We conduct audits and reviews to assess the efficectiveness and efficiency of the existing controls across the Institute. Our audits engagements range from audits of small centers to large schools, as well as audits of Institute-wide processes. Most audits and reviews are chosen based on an annual risk assessment. Some are required by laws and regulations to maintain compliance. Our goal is to add value and improve the Georgia Tech community. DIA offers the following services:
- Departmental Review (DR)
The Departmental Review is an assessment of how seven key areas of risk are managed within an entity. The seven areas of risk are fiscal, human resources, legal and regulatory, health and safety, information systems, public relation and student risk. Auditees are chosen based on the results of our risk assessment.
- Compliance Audit
The purpose of the Compliance Audit is to ensure the Institute’s compliance with Board of Regents (BOR) policies, laws and regulations. Some examples are Circular A-21, A-133 and Continuing Education Policy and Procedures Manual. Audits are conducted on an annual basis and results are reviewed by external entities, such as Department of Administrative Services, Department of Defense and BOR.
- Information Systems Audit
The Information Systems Audit is an examination of the controls within an Information Technology (IT) infrastructure. The examnimation assesses Georgia Tech critical systems, technology architecture and processes to ensure information assets are protected, reliable, available and compliant with applicable policies, laws and regulations.
