Types of Services Provided

Based upon input from the Internal Audit Committee, executive management, and the UT System Audit Office, an annual audit plan is developed that contains the scheduled projects for the upcoming fiscal year. 
The Office of Auditing and Consulting Services performs three types of engagements:

Assurances Services/Audits are objective examinations of evidence for the purpose of providing an independent assessment on control processes, risk management, and governance for the university.  These services are outlined in our annual audit plan and include operational, financial, compliance, and information technology audits.

Consulting Services/Special Requests are advisory and other service activities including counsel, advice, facilitation, process design, and training.  The objective of consulting services is to add value in the development or modification of processes, procedures, and controls to minimize risk and achieve objectives. The nature and scope of particular consulting services are agreed upon with management.

The Office of Auditing & Consulting Services acts as an in-house consultant on internal control matters and provides guidance on control aspects of new systems and procedures. We offer consulting services based on management requests and the availability of resources. Typically, consulting services do not follow the same reporting process as formal audits. Management may request a review and results of the review can either be verbal or in a written memo.  Please direct questions and requests for consulting services or audits to the Chief Audit Executive at (210) 458-4237.

Investigations evaluate allegations of suspected and reported fraudulent and/or dishonest activities.  When the investigation substantiates suspected criminal activity, the UTSA Police Department will be notified for further action.
