Internal audit partners with our executive management, campus administration, and the Board of Regents, to assess the landscape of risks Texas State Technical College (TSTC) is confronted with and evaluates management of those risks and provides feedback on improving risk management processes. To do this, we provide value-added audit and consulting services to evaluate operations, policies, procedures, and controls at TSTC.
The internal audit function reports directly to the Audit Committee of the Texas State Technical College Board of Regents and administratively to the TSTC Chancellor & CEO. This reporting structure ensures sufficient authority to promote independence, broad audit coverage, adequate consideration to audit reports and appropriate action on audit recommendations. The Internal Audit Charter provides that the internal audit department will have full, free and unrestricted access to any of TSTC’s activities, records, property, equipment and personnel relevant to any subject under review. Documents and information given to internal audit staff will be handled in a prudent and confidential manner.
