Welcome to the Office of the Internal Auditor

Welcome to the Office of the Internal Auditor at Western Washington University. We hope you will take a few moments to review our site. Our goals for this web site are to provide you with information about the Office of the Internal Auditor and show the ways in which we can assist the university community.

The Office of the Internal Auditor reports functionally to the Finance, Audit and Enterprise Risk Management Committee of the Board of Trustees and administratively to the President. Internal Audit is committed to assisting WWU management and staff in achieving their oversight, operating and management responsibilities through independent reviews designed to evaluate and promote the system of internal controls established by management.

In addition to formal audits and investigations, we are happy to answer questions and provide advice regarding university policies and federal and state regulations.  Internal Audit also works proactively as a consultant in areas of cash handling, ethics, compliance and operational internal controls.

University employees are encouraged to report improper governmental actions.  The Reporting Improper Governmental Actions web page provides information on this process and the Contact the Internal Auditor web page provides an anonymous reporting tool.

We hope this site will answer your questions regarding Internal Audit, our staff, and our responsibilities.  If you have any additional questions or comments please email us.
