  • Perform independent financial, compliance, and operational audits through review of records and control procedures, providing summary reports of results and recommendations of changes to internal controls and systems.
  • Manage relationships with third-party professionals conducting internal IT audits. Set scope, work with management regarding preliminary findings, and ensure a smooth process and timely final report.
