About Us

UCSF Audit & Advisory Services (AAS) was established in 1980 to fulfill the need for independent, objective assurance and advice that provides value added services toward reducing risk and improving operations.


Services provided include assurance/compliance audits, advisory/consulting projects, and investigative reviews. The scope of AAS encompasses activities within the UCSF Healthcare Enterprise; Professional Schools, Institutes and Centers, and related academic units of the UCSF Campus; and Finance and Administrative Services. Additionally, AAS coordinates the activities of visiting external auditors; provides special studies and assessments as requested by management; serves as the coordination and triage point for all whistleblower complaints; and assists, as requested, the University’s financial auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers, in performing the annual examination of the financial statements.
