The purpose of the Bureau of Internal Audit is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve the Agency’s operations. Our mission is to assist the Secretary and other Agency management in ensuring better health care for all Floridians by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.
The Bureau of Internal Audit operates within the Agency’s Office of the Inspector General under the authority of Section 20.055, Florida Statutes.
Each year the Bureau develops an annual engagement plan using appropriate risk-based methodology, including any risks or concerns identified by management. The engagement plan is flexible, as the Bureau may be requested to perform special examinations or projects by request from Agency management, the Executive Office of the Governor, or the Legislature.
The Bureau’s purpose, authority, responsibilities, work performance, independence and objectivity, and code of ethics are further defined in the
Internal Audit Charter [2 MB].
