Types of Audits

The goal of every audit we perform is to provide a beneficial service to UConn and UConn Health by identifying opportunities to improve control processes and introduce efficiencies. Typically, we perform one or more of the following types of audits for an area selected for audit:


Review departmental records and reports in order to confirm that financial transactions are properly recorded in the financial accounting, billing and reporting systems.


Provide an evaluation of processes, systems and operations to conclude on whether internal controls exist and are operating effectively to mitigate risks and promote the achievement of the goals and objectives.

Information Technology

Evaluate the information technology controls environment, including overall policies and procedures related to IT governance, cybersecurity, technology infrastructure, operational processes, and business applications against recognized industry standards and established policies.


Verify that departments and operations adhere to internal policies and procedures and external requirements from federal, state and/or local agencies.


Evaluate healthcare services for compliance with applicable policies and procedures, professional standards, and external laws and regulations.


Assess the athletic programs for compliance with National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations.


Independent evaluations of allegations generally focused on possible fraud, waste and abuse of assets and resources or violation of laws and regulations. As part of the investigations we seek to confirm the allegation occurred, determine the amount of any loss, identify the control weaknesses that allowed the allegation to occur and recommend corrective actions to prevent recurrences.
