Why Internal Audit?

Regulators now focus increasing attention on the quality and effectiveness of internal controls. Internal controls are designed to mitigate the risk of loss from asset misappropriation, failure to comply with regulations, or inadequate financial reporting. Well managed credit unions receive significant benefits and risk mitigation from using the services of an internal auditor to evaluate the design, implementation, and effectiveness of the internal control system. While larger credit unions frequently establish an internal audit department, smaller institutions may benefit from utilizing the services of an outside consultant to perform this function on a quarterly basis or as needed.
