The Audit Division supports the Institute’s efforts to follow good practices, control risks, and keep assets safe. Like you, we work for MIT and share your commitment to its mission.
We are internal auditors. Our objectives are different from external auditors that provide oversight to federal agencies. We recommend process improvements and encourage your efforts to fine-tune your operations.
How we’re organized
We have a dual reporting structure to ensure our independence: We work for the MIT Corporation Risk and Audit Committee and are supported administratively by the Executive Vice President and Treasurer.
Independence and objectivity are two critical components of the work we do. We’re authorized to access all functions, records, property, and personnel, but we don’t have any personal or professional involvement with the areas we audit. This structure enables us to be unbiased and impartial .
