The UTAS external audit program is developed through two approaches.
On an annual basis a core external audit program is set by the Tasmanian Audit Office. An outline of the annual audit program including scope and related costs is provided by the Tasmanian Audit Office to the UTAS Audit & Risk Committee for sign off prior to commencement. Final audit statements & reports are provided in sufficient time for UTAS to meet its financial and legislative reporting requirements.
As part of a comprehensive program of audit activities across entities at a state level the Tasmanian Audit Office also run a program of Performance Audits. UTAS is a willing participant in such audits.
The Auditor General presents his Annual report, audit certification and management letter to both the Audit & Risk Committee of the University Council and in his annual report to state parliament.
