Welcome to Audit and Consulting Services!
The Statewide Office of Audit and Consulting Services is an internal yet independent and objective assurance and advisory department that understands the culture of the UA system.

Statewide Office of Audit and Consulting Services Departmental Report for FY2020. The report provides a “look back” at the department’s activities during the year most recently completed.
Oftentimes, UA personnel interact with an auditor for only a brief period of time as we are conducting our assurance and advisory responsibilities. We understand that it can be confusing to see how this limited interaction fits within our overall responsibilities. The report describes the different projects and engagements we worked on, the outcome, and how we are fulfilling the requirements that are governed by the Institute of Internal Auditors and the Generally Accepted Governmental Auditing Standards.
It is not unusual for controls to be quickly modified to adjust to a rapidly changing environment during a pandemic or emergency situation. The information communicated in the link below is intended to help departments with critical points to be aware of when controls are temporarily modified or temporarily overridden due to staffing and work environment changes. The information is subject to change and updated as needed to adapt to emerging risk situations.
