Uniac - July 2022

2 We are here to make a difference to the institutions we serve. We work in partnership to manage risk, promote effective and efficient mitigation measures and, more broadly, help develop risk, assurance and audit arrangements. We offer: • objectivity, integrity and constructive challenge • drive, innovation and creativity • confidence and diligence and • detailed and specialist knowledge of higher education. We pride ourselves on the knowledge and experience of our staff who are empowered and encouraged to deliver value adding reviews for a diverse range of higher education providers across the UK. We have a flexible and tailored approach that recognises the differences between working at large and research- intensive universities through to niche specialist providers. “In addition to the delivery of the internal audit programmes across institutions, we also produce regular, topical briefing notes – aimed at boards, audit committees and senior management. This brochure contains a few of those. If you’d like to know a bit more about Uniac and our services, please do get in touch.” Director’s Foreword: Richard Young Introduction: Who we are, and what we do 01. Modern Slavery Act 2015 02.
