About Assurance

Assurance involves the coordination and gathering of information and evidence for the Audit and Scrutiny Committee and for Council about the adequacy and effectiveness of the University’s policies and processes, and about its compliance with its statutory obligations.  The Audit and Scrutiny Committee and Council rely on this evidence in discharging their legal and regulatory responsibilities. One of the major sources of assurance on which the Audit and Scrutiny Committee and Council rely is internal audit.

The Assurance function works closely with the Compliance team in developing an assurance framework that is related to the University’s management of risk. 

For advice and guidance about Assurance or internal audit, please contact Sally Vine, the Head of Assurance and Risk Management.
