UOS is seeking to appoint a supplier for Internal Audit. The internal audit service is responsible for providing an objective, independent appraisal of all the institution’s activities, financial and otherwise. It should provide a service to the whole organisation, including the governing body and all levels of management. It is not an extension of, nor a substitute for, good management, although it can have a role in advising management. Under the Memorandum of assurance and accountability between HEFCE and Institutions, the internal audit service is responsible for evaluating and reporting to the institution’s governing body and head of institution, thereby providing them with assurance on the arrangements for risk management control, governance, Value for Money (VFM) and the management and quality assurance of data. It remains the duty of management, not the internal auditor, to operate these arrangements.
