Audit Services prepares an Audit Plan annually that is based upon an Institutional Risk Assessment that encompasses Institutional Research, Information Technology, Patient Care, and Financial Management areas. Also included are externally required compliance audits.

The Institutional Audit Committee reviews and approves the Audit Plan.


The Internal Audit Charter defines the policy of UTMB Health regarding Audit Services and authorizes its access to records, personnel, and physical properties relevant to the performance of audits, and to define the scope of internal auditing activities.
