Audit and Advisory Services

Audit and Advisory Services provides internal audit and consulting services to San Francisco State University and its auxiliary organizations. The Institute of Internal Auditors defines internal auditing as "an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes."


We conduct and report to management on reviews of internal controls in the following categories: operational, financial reporting, and compliance. We also perform special investigations of suspected fiscal irregularities and assists in coordinating visits of outside auditors, acting as a liaison between management and auditors as needed.
