What is the function of the Office of Internal Audit and Assurance?

The Internal Audit and Assurance Office was established to provide an independent examination, appraisal, and evaluation of Texas Southern University operations on behalf of the Board of Regents, the President, and management.

In addition, the Office of Internal Audit and Assurance is dedicated to providing management with value-added services, as well as reasonable assurance to the Board and university management in the following categories: 

  • Reliability and integrity of financial and operational information
  • Effectiveness and efficiency of operations
  • Compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and contracts
  • Safeguarding of assets

In performing these activities, the auditor is authorized to have full, free, and unrestricted access to all property, personnel and records (including medical) relevant to the subject under review. The Board of Regents, via the TSU Internal Audit Charter, grants this authority.
