Mission Statement

The mission of Internal Audit is to provide independent and objective reviews and assessments of the business activities, operations, financial systems and internal accounting controls of Ramapo College of New Jersey. Internal Audit accomplishes its mission through the conduct of operational, financial, regulatory and performance audits, selected as a result of a comprehensive risk analysis and assessment process. The risk assessment plan is reviewed and approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees and the President of Ramapo College.


Internal Audit conducts independent reviews and appraisals of the College’s procedures and operations. These reviews provide management with an independent appraisal of the various operations and systems of control. The reviews also help to ensure that College resources are used efficiently and effectively while working towards helping the College achieve its mission, as endorsed by the Board of Trustees. It is the intention of Internal Audit to perform this service with professional care and with minimal disruption to College operations.
