THE INTERNAL AUDIT
Internal Audit is an independent appraisal activity within an organization which aims at reviewing the accounting, financial and other operations as a basis for service to management.
It is in recognition of this that the management of the University started the Audit Unit under the office of the Vice Chancellor in May, 2013, after operating without this function since inception in 2005 foundation.
The department started with the following staff.
With the change of leadership in 2018, the new Vice Chancellor, Prof. Yohanna D. Izam saw the need to inject additional staff into the department by bringing in three staff who are,
Mr Dauda J. Izan - Assist. Chief Executive Officer
Mr Donatus Nkup Yoktok - Assist. Chief Executive Officer
Miss Uhoman Mallo - Confidential Secretary I
The addition has gone a long way to strengthen and boost the morale and performance of staff in the department.
The staff in the department have been attending one conference or the other at least once a year in order to update themselves in the accounting profession. We thank the management for their support in this regard.
The work of the Internal Audit covers the whole operations of the University. Our office is directly answerable to the Vice Chancellor.
