Welcome to Audit & Advisory Services

Audit & Advisory Services provides independent and objective assurance, advisory and investigative services to the University community and the Board of Regents to add value and improve the organization's operations. Through a systematic and disciplined approach, we first evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of risk management, control and governance processes within a unit and then present suggestions for improving them.

As a trusted advisor, we deliver risk-based information, insight and education at the right time to the right people to foster effective decisions. We collaborate with you to assess the significance of risks facing your unit and formulate approaches to mitigating those risks. 

We look forward to partnering with you.




UCSF Audit & Advisory Services is excited to host a panel of experts from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Office of the Inspector General and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners as we cover a broad array of topics related to fraud, including procurement, medical billing, research grants, foreign operations and more. This webinar is aimed at creating awareness of current fraud trends and schemes in these areas and their impact on the healthcare and higher education institutions.

The webinar will be held on March 5, 2024, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 PM via Zoom. Attached is the registration link:  https://ucsf.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_CdLJg7tXTS-6d3hu7apzcg
