Sokoine University of Agriculture Internal Audit Unit was established in 1985. Its main role was to assist management to evaluate the effectiveness of control systems to safeguarding the interest of the University. But the scope and intents of Internal Audit is changing every now and then to align with environmental changes and for streamlining purposes.
To date the purpose of Internal Audit is to provide independent assurance and consulting activities designed to add value and improve University’s operations. It helps the Sokoine University of Agriculture to accomplish its objective by bringing a systematic, discipline approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, controls, and governance process.
