We offer the following services to carry out our mission to support the university’s successful achievement of institutional objectives through the promotion of sound business practices and internal controls.

Portfolio of Services: Advisory

We support our stakeholders in establishing best practices and internal controls, identifying and mitigating risks throughout the project lifecycle (e.g., participating in steering committees, reviewing process and control design, raising awareness and facilitating conversations about risk and opportunities in system implementations), and provide perspective on sufficiency of policies and procedures for compliance with relevant regulations.

Portfolio of Services: Investigations

We enable the university’s confidential ethics and misconduct reporting process by serving as the CU EthicsLine administrator. We evaluate and thoroughly investigate, in a timely manner, reports of alleged employee fraud and fiscal misconduct, which we receive through various sources: CU EthicsLine, phone, email, or in-person. As requested, we provide investigative support to other university departments and to the Office of University Counsel during litigation of related cases.

Portfolio of Services: Education

We collaborate with our stakeholders and other university assurance and compliance functions to deliver insight into establishing and maintaining an effective control environment, regulatory compliance, and fraud prevention and detection. We regularly present at meetings of university shared governance and administrative groups, at campus events, and at local and national professional conferences.
