What we do
The Internal Audit Department improves TCUS’ operations by focusing on aspects of governance, risk, and compliance. Independent and objective, the Department works closely with our auditees and the individuals we service in order to build long-term relationships and develop a better understanding of the business and operational issues they face.
Our team is comprised of highly trained individuals who possess extensive business and industry expertise, technical acumen, and the ability to identify and analyze key risks and apply best practices based on mutual understanding of audit and business needs. We combine process and system benchmarking experience with organizational knowledge.
The Internal Audit team provides services in the areas of strategy, operations, technology, risk, compliance, and investigations.
