Internal Audit Support                  

The DGSOM Controller's Office provides project management, guidance, and support to departments in responding to internal audits conducted by UCLA Audit & Advisory Services. The DGSOM Controller's Office assists departments in reviewing and evaluating current processes and procedures in order to improve and/or  develop controls in key business areas such as financial management, budget and planning, research, student affairs, human resources, and governance.



UCLA Audit & Advisory Services communicates the timing of audit engagements and their areas of focus for each fiscal year.  A report is issued at the conclusion of each engagement and provided to the department and DGSOM leadership. Response and corrective action are determined and implemented.

Department Audits

The DGSOM Controller's Office is available to support departments who have ultimate responsibility for responding and closing out audit observations.  Each audit observation is required to be addressed in a reasonable and timely manner. Any observation that exceeds 300 days since report issuance, will be included in the Office of the President’s report to the Regents as an overdue issue.

UC Internal Audit

UC Internal Audit is responsible for the systemwide internal audit program (audits, investigations and advisory services). UC Internal Audit manages communications with the Regents' Committee on Compliance and Audit and is responsible for the audit program for all campuses. Overdue responses and other material observations are escalated to UC attention.
