This web site is provided to familiarize the Simmons College community with the internal audit function and to aid the community in accessing policies and regulations. Please contact the office if your department has a policy that you would like added to this site.
The internal audit function is responsible for offering an independent review of various areas of the College. Areas to be reviewed are based on the comprehensive annual audit plan approved by the General Counsel and the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees. In addition, reviews are added throughout the year upon request by management or the Board.
Reviews can be performed for a variety of purposes and the scope can range from a limited assessment to a comprehensive evaluation. Reviews can address financial systems as well as non-financial functions. In addition to evaluating the effectiveness of internal controls and the reliability of data, operational reviews can be performed to insure that operations (day-to-day activity) in the College are running efficiently. Lastly, a review can be performed to ensure compliance with rules and regulations of external agencies and organizations.
