Summary:

Responsible for all aspects of the Internal Audit department by organizing, directing, and planning audit functions and reporting to the Supervisory Committee the results for financial and business procedure controls audits and special projects.

Responsibilities:

  • Performs annual risk assessment correlating industry trends, annual operating budget, prior Internal Audit results, and interviews with leaders in the organization; the annual risk assessment leads to the proposed Audit Plan to be reviewed/approved by the Supervisory Committee.
  • Leads the Internal Audit organization in all planning, fieldwork, and reporting phases of the Audit Plan plus special projects which may be requested by Management or the Supervisory Committee.
  • Reviews, edits, and approves audit programs which the Internal Audit team then uses as the foundation of their fieldwork; ensures audit plans are refreshed annually.
  • Researches organizational activities and ensures that both business departments and cross-department business processes are documented in narrative or flow-chart format, control points are identified, inefficiencies or conflicting processes are noted, and audit coverage includes the highest possible risks areas.
  • Ensures the use of statistically significant and accurate sample methods to ensure proper transparency of test work balanced with limited staff resources; discourages expensive full-scope testing when statistical methods yield reasonable results.
  • Appreciates the IT Application General Controls and provides for Integrated Audit coverage of IT risks during the course of Internal Audits, either using internal team members or partnering with the Information Security organization.
  • Develops techniques to retrieve reports and electronic records directly from source systems, thus reducing the risk of report filtering or errors in handling.
  • Ensures the accuracy and effectiveness of business writing for all published deliverables, such as Internal Audit reports, including the understandability of issues, risks, and recommendations.
  • Operates an issue tracking methodology to ensure that all reported issues have a measurable deliverable and timeline assigned, that open issues are monitored toward closure, and dashboard metrics are published monthly which include the number of open and closed issues of a high, medium, or low risk nature, including aging and focus on those issues where responsible management is delayed in their committed risk mitigation efforts.
  • Meets monthly with the Supervisory Committee to represent the accomplishments of Internal Audit including audit opinions and recommendations to mitigate risk.
  • Administers a Proactive Monitoring methodology whereby business units perform “self-auditing” for quality and consistency in their processes, which Internal Audit can then oversee and spot-check for acceptable levels of performance.
  • Leads the Fraud area by providing leadership in response and monitoring; serves as the primary education source in the organization for emerging fraud trends. Develops processes to filter and communicate fraud awareness alerts on a timely basis.
  • Ensures Internal Audit representation as a proactive participant in new organization initiatives, allowing the contribution of control objectives into the existing project management workflow of such initiatives, on a consultative basis. Educates leaders within the organization on the value and appropriateness of controls to manage risk and achieve Management’s expectations.
  • Oversees examination of fixed assets to ascertain purchase authorization and existence of such assets.
  • Ensures that comprehensive work papers documentation is retained for all Internal Audit work, preferably organized in electronic format.
  • Ensures that the department's needs are met in regards to the employment, counseling, performance evaluations, performance goals, allocating resources, training, motivation, staff meetings and discipline of assigned employees in California and remotely.
  • Ensures that the Internal Audit department has current documented policies and procedures of its own.
  • Interfaces directly with all stakeholders including internal management of all departments, all staff members, regulators, external audit firms, and local law enforcement.
  • Partners with external audit firms as needed to ensure specialized coverage of risk topics, or staff augmentation if needed to complete the Audit Plan on schedule.
  • Ensures full compliance with UNIFY Financial Credit Union Service Standards, policies, procedures and the Bank Secrecy Act.
