Established within the University of Texas System (UT) as a service to the Board of Regents, Chancellor, and executive staff of the UT System, the System Audit Office provides an independent internal audit appraisal function to examine and evaluate UT System activities.
The internal audit activity is established by the UT System Board of Regents. The internal audit activity’s responsibilities are defined by the Audit, Compliance, and Risk Management Committee (ACRMC) of the UT System Board of Regents as part of its oversight role.
The System Audit Office’s mission is to serve the UT System Board of Regents, UT System Administration, and UT System institutions by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice, and insight to protect and enhance organizational value. We support UT System’s pursuit to improve the human condition through an internal audit program of excellence and innovation.
