Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment Process – We Want Your Input!

Like all units at WVU, the Internal Audit Office has limited resources to perform its duties.  To help us focus our time, we conduct an annual risk assessment process.

In April and May of each year, Internal Audit conducts a risk assessment to evaluate the areas that may pose the greatest risks to the University and formulate an audit plan for the year ahead.  This process includes a large number of interviews with senior leadership across the University.

Our audit responsibilities span the entire University. We may conduct audits to address risks in all areas, including but not limited to: operational and business processes, information systems and security, financial reporting, and compliance areas (Federal, State, local, NCAA, etc.)

We’d like your input!

If you have suggestions for future audits, please email your ideas to:
