The Internal Audit Department’s mission is to provide independent examination and analysis of the activities of the thirteen colleges and the system office. We also perform required audits of the recipients of Colorado Vocational Act funds.

The objectives of the Internal Audit Department include assisting management and the Board of Directors in the effective discharge of their responsibilities by furnishing them with analysis, appraisals, recommendations, counsel, and information based on professional judgment and as a result of reviews and audits. Our aim is to act in partnership with the System office and college management, providing valuable services back to the college system.

The Director of Internal Audit reports functionally to the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee members are appointed from the Board of Directors by the Board Chairman. Current Audit Committee members are John Trefny, Rich Martinez and Jim Johnson.

CCCS Internal Audit Department Reporting Structure. Internal Audit Staff reports to the Director of Internal Audit who reports to the Audit Committee and has a dotted line to the System President. Both the Audit Committee and the System President report to the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education


Policies & Procedures

The Director of Internal Audit reports functionally to the Audit Committee. All policies, procedures and reports developed by the Internal Audit Department are reviewed and approved by the committee.

Our audit process generally is to plan our audits in advance, notifying the college president, chief financial officer and controller of the audit. The auditors then coordinate scheduling with the auditee, and provide a list of documents that will aid in the timely completion of the audit. It is our goal to make our processes as effective and efficient as possible.
