Welcome to The State Internal Audit Advisory Board (Board). Our mission is to promulgate a uniform set of professional standards and a code of ethics (based on the standards and ethics of the Institute of Internal Auditors, the General Accounting Office, and other professional standards as applicable) to which all State internal auditors must adhere. The Board also serves as a clearinghouse for the correlation of internal audit training needs, training designed to meet those needs, and coordinates quality assurance review activities among the State's internal audit units.

The purpose of this Web site is to enhance the support services we provide to our customers. We've provided a number of resources here to help you with auditing solutions, on-line training and education, and to gather suggestions on how to better serve the internal auditing profession of the State of Illinois. 

For any questions regarding the content and resources provided on this site, please contact us at jzemaiti@uillinois.edu.

  2. The Certification in Control Self-Assessment (CCSA) will be realized with the Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA) program through an extensive global job analysis study which will result in a revised CRMA exam syllabus that covers internal controls and risk management.
