Internal Audit and Advisory Services (IAAS)

Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.

The Idaho State Board of Education, recognizing the value of internal audit, has established IAAS to provide audit service to the Idaho State Board of Education and to Boise State University, Idaho State University, Lewis-Clark State College, and the University of Idaho. IAAS conducts a variety of audit and advisory related audit engagements designed to proactively identify risks and to evaluate internal controls, with the ultimate goal to strengthen operations of Idaho Higher Education. To maintain independence, IAAS reports functionally to the Audit Committee of the Idaho State Board of Education and administratively to the Office of the State Board of Education.
