Welcome to Internal Board Audit

  • Internal Board Audit (IBA) at Duval County Public Schools (District) is an independent appraisal function which was established to examine and evaluate District activities as a service to management and stakeholders. The overall mission of IBA is to provide independent, objective assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve operations.

     IBA audits operations of the District.  To function properly, auditors must be independent of the activities they audit.  Such independence permits auditors to perform their work freely and objectively.  The Executive Director of Internal Board Audit reports to the School Board through its Auditor Selection Committee, thereby providing the independence to objectively appraise operatons of the District.

     IBA's vision is to be among the best internal audit departments in the country, recognized by stakeholders and peers for innovation, integrity of work, and quality of reports. IBA is committed to promoting teamwork in a diverse workforce, and encouraging the personal and professional growth of staff.

     Internal Auditing provides Insight, Assurance and Objectivity:

    • Objectivity

      With commitment to integrity and accountability, internal auditing provides value to governing bodies and senior management as an objective source of independent advice.
