Internal Audit & Corporate Governance Officer

Internal Audit

BizLink's Internal Audit function is an independent unit that reports directly to the Board of Directors.

The charter of Internal Audit is to review the internal controls in the company's processes and to report on those controls with respect to the adequacy, effectiveness, and efficiency of their design as well as their actual functioning on a day-to-day basis. All parts of the company and its subsidiaries are open for review by Internal Audit.

Internal Audit works according to an annual plan, which needs to be approved by the Board of Directors. In addition, special audits or reviews are conducted as needed. The combination of the regular audits and the special projects provide management with feedback on the functioning of the internal control system; it gives management an additional channel to learn about existing or possible future weaknesses in the system and addresses them in a timely manner.

The company supplements the review activities by Internal Audit with documented self-assessments by the departments and operational units. Internal Audit sees to it that these activities do take place, and reviews the submissions to ensure the quality of the process; it consolidates the results of the self-assessments for the CEO and the Board of Directors.

There are three full-time employees dedicated to Internal Audit, including one VP and two staffs.
