Welcome to Compliance and Internal Audit Office (CIAO)
The University of Sharjah is an institution with a remarkable history of achievements brought about by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah. In 2021, His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, issued Emiri Decree No. 46 regarding the appointment of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, as the President of the University of Sharjah and Chairman of its Board of Trustees.
The CIAO of the University is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve the organization's operations. The CIAO assists the University in accomplishing its mission and objectives by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the University's governance, risk management, and internal control processes.
The CIAO functionally reports to the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees and administratively to the Chancellor. In order to maintain independence, the office does not have operating responsibilities for management processes or internal controls.
