The Risk Management Department works collaboratively to assist the University community in fulfilling their missions by identifying, assessing, and mitigating the risks that threaten students, employees, and guests. Under general direction of the Associate Vice President for Risk Management, the Director of Audits and Compliance plays a key role in advancing the mission of the Risk Management Department.

The Director serves as campus liaison for all Chancellor’s Office audit activities. In this capacity, the Director facilitates all phases of those audits, including pre-audit document and information gathering, audit fieldwork and status updates, responses to audit drafts, and post-audit recommendation follow-up. The Director works closely with the Chancellor’s Office and appropriate campus departments to ensure that recommendations are cleared within 6 months.

The Director is responsible for planning, executing, and administering the internal audit function for the University and its auxiliary organizations. Internal audit should test for compliance with federal and state laws and regulations and CSU policies, and assess the effectiveness of operating controls over campus activities. In doing so, the Director will conduct reviews of higher-risk organization and functional activities, and recommend appropriate corrective action or changes in current University policies, procedures, and systems.

The Director is responsible for providing ongoing consulting to manage campuswide risks and address noncompliance with federal and state laws and CSU policies. A significant subject area in this regard includes handling incidents of waste, fraud, and abuse affecting campus resources.
