UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS DARTMOUTH
AUDIT PROTOCOLS POLICY
Under Board of Trustee Policy Doc. T92-062, the Controller of the Dartmouth campus is designated as the audit liaison for all audit activities occurring in the campus. In most cases, the Controller’s office or the Office of Research Administration (ORA) is notified in advance of any external audit or review of programmatic or financial activity by an external entity. The Controller’s office coordinates all site visits and the preparation of responses to written requests for financial information.
Auditors who regularly perform work on the campus are generally aware of our protocols and work through the Controller’s office. On occasion, however, auditors unfamiliar with this requirement may call upon campus departments directly. These individuals should be referred to the Controller’s office before providing information or access to campus data or facilities.
