Welcome to Internal Audit

CSU Channel Islands is going through a period of great growth at a time when resources are limited. Internal Audit and Consulting Services (IACS) was created to help ensure the University is maximizing the effectiveness of our resources—both human and capital—to ensure the best quality education and experience possible for our student body.  This is accomplished by taking a proactive role in the continuous development of necessary policies, procedures, and controls needed to support an expanding campus.

We are committed to maximizing efficiency and continuously improving business processes across campus, including the internal audit function itself.
