Welcome to the Office of Internal Audit at Mississippi State University. MSU’s Office of Internal Audit is an independent, objective assurance and consulting service designed to add value to and improve the University's operations. We report administratively to the President and functionally to the Budget, Finance and Audit Committee and ultimately the Board of Trustees through the Board’s system Chief Audit Executive (see Org Chart). We help the University accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluation and improving the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.

In addition to formal audits and control assessments, we are happy to answer questions and give advice regarding specific policies and procedures and act as consultants on internal controls.

We hope this site will provide you with helpful information regarding the Office of Internal Audit and our function. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments.
