Ethics, Compliance and Audit Board


The UCSF Ethics, Compliance and Audit Board (ECAB) functions as a coordinating and decision-making body responsible to the Chancellor and has overall administrative responsibility for:
  • Interpreting University audit policy and coordinating development of compatible Campus internal audit policies and services;
  • Reviewing and recommending for approval an annual plan of audits and related services;
  • Reviewing audit results (external and internal), activity reports, status of corrective actions and areas of concern;
  • Approving changes to the annual audit plan; and
  • Evaluating the adequacy of resources of the Audit & Advisory Services department.

Appointment and composition of members

In accord with the University of California Internal Audit Management Plan, the Chancellor appoints the ECAB members from among senior administrative officers representative of the interests of the Campus. The membership will be broad enough to provide representation from among the faculty administrative leadership, Medical Center, central administration and the Office of Research.

The UCSF ECAB meets semi-quarterly. The ECAB Chair and the Chief Audit Officer shall meet with the Chancellor and/or the Executive Vice Chancellor/Provost, as needed, to report on audit results and issues. Audit & Advisory Services shall prepare and distribute a written agenda to each Committee member in advance of the scheduled meeting.
