About the Office of Internal Audit

The Office of Internal Audit (OIA) supports the mission of the M-NCPPC by helping to protect its assets and reputation. The OIA provides objective assurance and advice on behalf of the agency by reviewing operations and controls and their related accounting, financial, computer, and operational policies; providing relevant analysis; recommending improvements; and promoting ethical behavior and compliance with policies and regulations.

The OIA exists to assist management and the Audit Committee in the effective discharge of their responsibilities. The Office is responsible for examining and evaluating the adequacy and effectiveness of the systems of internal controls and their related accounting, financial, computer, and operational policies. The OIA provides Audits, Management Advisory Services, and Training. Click here to read more about the types of services the OIA offers.


The OIA is led by the Chief Internal Auditor (CIA) and is governed by the Audit Committee. The CIA works with the Audit Committee to establish an overall audit plan for the agency. The Audit Committee provides independent oversight of the agency’s financial reporting processes and ensures that the agency develops and implements a sound system of internal controls and adheres to the highest standards of public accountability and integrity.

The CIA reports to the Commission’s Chair and Vice-Chair functionally, while also reporting to the Executive Director administratively.  In all matters relating to audit work, the (OIA) is independent.
