Management Agreed-Upon Responses (MARs)

Audit and Advisory Services (A&AS) has implemented a continuous Management Review and Response process. This process involves examining reports issued by A&AS, Chancellor’s Office, and External Auditors/Consultants. All reports will be reviewed to identify recommendations, management responses, and the status of agreed upon management response corrective actions. 
 
Following the conclusion of Audit & Advisory Services’s internal audit engagement with your department, a written report will be prepared and distributed to auditee management. When the final audit draft report is issued, each observation will have a corresponding recommendation to correct the finding. If auditee management agrees with the recommendations, a response must be provided. 
 
Use the MARs Guide to help you develop comprehensive management responses and understand the follow up process.
