Internal Audit is an independent objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve the college management systems. Internal Audit helps the college accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. Internal Audit assists the college's management in the effective discharge of their duties and responsibilities by evaluating activities, recommending improvements, and providing other information designed to promote effective controls.
The Internal Audit function adheres to The Institute of Internal Auditors' mandatory guidance including the Definition of Internal Auditing, the Code of Ethics, and the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards).
Southwest Tennessee Community College is committed to the responsible stewardship of its resources. Management is responsible for maintaining a work environment that promotes ethical and honest behavior, and for establishing and implementing internal control systems and procedures to prevent and detect irregularities.
