Internal Audit Policy - 210.06

Johnson County Community College
Series 200: Administrative Services
Section 210: Accounting and Auditing

The Board of Trustees has established an internal audit function to provide college management with information to better control operations. Internal Auditing is an independent review and appraisal activity with responsibility to audit all college operations as a service to management. In order to maintain independence and objectivity, the Executive Director of Audit & Advisory Services shall report directly to the Board of Trustees, via the Audit Committee, with a functional reporting relationship to the College President.  Audit reports will be submitted to the President and to the board Audit Committee for their review. 

Internal Audit activities will be conducted in a manner consistent with the definition of internal auditing, the Code of Ethics, and Professional Standards, as set forth by the Institute of Internal Auditors.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the director, manager, and staff of the college’s internal audit department during regular business hours shall have access to and authority to examine and reproduce, any and all books, accounts, reports, vouchers, correspondence files, and all other records, bank accounts, and money or other property of Johnson County Community College for any audit or investigation.  Any officer or employee of Johnson County Community College who retains these records or property in his or her possession, under his or her control, or otherwise having access to them, shall permit access to, and examination and reproduction thereof, upon the request of the Executive Director of Audit and Advisory Services, or his or her authorized representative.

No provision of law providing for the confidentiality of any records or property shall prevent disclosure of records or evidence, unless the provision specifically refers to and precludes access and examination of records by the audit function of an institution.
