Periodic Assessment

The Chief Audit Executive should periodically assess whether the purpose, authority, and responsibility, as defined in this charter, continue to be adequate to enable Internal Audit to accomplish its objectives. The result of this periodic assessment should be communicated to Audit Committee of the Board of Regents. The Audit Committee should periodically review and affirm the Internal Audit Charter.

In addition, the Chief Audit Executive will periodically review the quality and effectiveness of the internal audit activity to include compliance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing.  This includes a Quality Assurance Review as directed by the Texas Internal Auditing Act, Chapter 2102 of the Texas Government Code.
