Internal Audit’s mission is to provide independent, objective assurance and advisory services to assist the enterprise in maintaining an effective system of internal controls.
Internal Audit supports the Boards of Directors in their oversight of the governance, risk and control framework, and will achieve and maintain the highest level of professional standards, while furthering the development of our employees.

• Fully resolve review notes and apply learning from those review notes to future projects
• Lead projects from time to time as experience grows
• Demonstrate a strong knowledge of IAD’s policies and procedures—particularly work paper documentation standards
