• Welcome to Northeastern University’s Audit & Advisory Services website.

    Audit & Advisory Services is an independent, objective assurance and consulting function designed to add value and improve University operations. We are employees of the University hired to assess and evaluate the University’s internal control environment, assist management in identifying potential risks and controls, and offer recommendations for improvement.

    We are here to help you become more effective and efficient in your areas of operation. Our goal is to work collaboratively with you to ensure internal controls are designed effectively and operating efficiently. Additionally, we are required to conduct special investigations when ethical business conduct is questioned or misappropriation of assets is suspected.

    The audit staff comes from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds and many hold advanced degrees and certifications that are highly regarded in the audit industry.

    The Vice President of Audit & Advisory Services has a direct reporting relationship to the Audit & Risk Committee of the University’s Board of Trustees, and also report administratively to the Senior Vice President for Finance and Treasurer.

    Thank you for visiting our website. We encourage you to take some time and explore our department and the services we offer. There are many helpful and informative links not only related to Audit & Advisory Services, but also to related divisions within Northeastern University’s organization.
