The Office of Audit and Compliance (OAC) is a systemwide resource for the University of Tennessee. Under the direction of Sandy Jansen, OAC reports directly to the Audit and Compliance Committee of the UT Board of Trustees. Our office helps the University achieve its mission by providing objective, independent evaluations to reduce risk and improve operations.

About the Office

OAC is comprised of two functions: audit and institutional compliance. Two divisions operate within the audit function: the audit and the information technology and security assessment divisions. The department has offices on the Knoxville, Memphis, and Chattanooga campuses.

The audit team develops an annual audit plan based on a risk assessment and conducts work in conformance with The Institute of Internal Auditors’ International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. The team performs audits focused on internal controls, fraud prevention and detection, information technology, and effectiveness and efficiency, as well as fraud investigations, among others.

The institutional compliance team is responsible for designing, implementing, and monitoring the UT systemwide compliance program and promoting the University’s Code of Conduct.
