Internal Audit

Who We Are

Reporting to the President and the Board of Trustees, the Internal Audit Office performs risk-based audits to provide an independent appraisal of the university's financial, operational and control activities. We promote good stewardship of university assets and resources to uphold the highest level of integrity while minimizing the university's exposure to risk.

What We Do

Internal Audit personnel report on the adequacy of internal controls, the accuracy and propriety of transactions, the extent to which assets are accounted for and safeguarded, and the level of compliance with institutional policies and government laws and regulations. In addition, we provide analyses, recommendations, counsel and information concerning the activities reviewed.

Ethics and Compliance Hotline

The University has contracted with an independent company, EthicsPoint, to provide an ethics and compliance hotline. This service allows any member of the Lehigh Community (faculty, staff and students) the opportunity to anonymously and confidentially report concerns they have regarding the financial and operational aspects of the University. This would include financial or ethical concerns, fraud, conflicts of interest, noncompliance with governmental or university requirements, etc.
