Internal Audit and Advisory Services

Welcome to the Delaware State University’s Office of Internal Audit and Advisory Services. We hope you find the resources on our website helpful and informative.

Internal auditing is an independent and objective assurance and consulting activity that is guided by a philosophy which results in value being added to improve the operations of the University. It assists the University’s leadership to successfully meet or exceed its objectives by a systematic and structured approach to evaluate and transform the effectiveness of the risk management mitigation plan and internal control processes.

The Office of Internal Audit provides critical support in maintaining the public’s confidence by performing and completing independent and objective reviews and reporting its findings and recommendations to the Audit and Enterprise Risk Management Committee and to the responsible administrative and academic officers so that corrective actions or process enhancements can be undertaken. The Office of Internal Audit’s objective is to assist the Board of Trustees, President and University management in the effective discharge of their responsibilities.

When reporting concerns or suspicious activities please follow the below protocol:

Please report concerns of misconduct and any other suspicious activities anonymously to the Office of Internal Audit by calling 302.857.7182 or completing a Report Form. These contacts may be used to report a variety of ethical, integrity, safety, security, and compliance concerns and may be used by anyone including, but not limited to, students, faculty, staff, vendors, contractors and visitors.

Please provide the following information when reporting an incident anonymously:

  • Person(s) involved in reported incident, including title(s) if known
  • Brief description of incident being reported
  • Location of incident being reported
  • Time and duration of reported incident

Thank you for assisting the University in maintaining the highest level of ethical standards and professionalism.  Both the hotline and reporting form communication channels will be monitored weekly.
