AMAS Director's Message

Thank you for your interest in University of California, Davis (UCD) Audit and Management Advisory Services (AMAS).

AMAS supports the mission of UCD by partnering with management to provide them with independent and objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve operations. We do this through communication, monitoring and collaboration with management to assist the UCD community in the discharge of their oversight, management and operating responsibilities. AMAS brings a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluating and improving the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.

AMAS functions under the policies established by the regents of the University of California and by university management under delegated authority. AMAS has the authority for full access to all University records, properties and personnel relevant to the subject under review. The Department is free to review and appraise policies, plans, procedures, and records. The Director of AMAS reports to the Chancellor and to the Senior Vice President of Ethics, Compliance and Audit Services.

To maintain the independence required by the professional standards governing the internal audit profession, AMAS will not develop and install procedures, prepare records or engage in any other activity which it normally would be expected to review and appraise and which could reasonably be construed to compromise its independence.

Please contact me or a member of the AMAS team for additional information about the services offered by AMAS, or with any other questions you might have.
