The local Audit Advisory Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Laboratory Director in providing overall guidance and oversight of the Internal Audit function. The UC Regents Audit Committee provides independent oversight. The local Audit Advisory Committee will promote and foster a system and environment that supports the highest level of integrity and ethical conduct by all LBNL employees with fellow employees, and those from whom we receive direction, e.g. UC, DOE and other parties with whom we conduct business. Responsibilities of the local Audit Advisory Committee include, among others:
- Reviewing and providing input to the risk assessment process, which is the basis of the annual plan;
- Reviewing and recommending approval of the annual plan of audits and related services and provide recommendations to the Laboratory Director or his designee, and approving changes to the audit plan.
