Missions of the Internal Audit Department

In compliance with the CNRS's internal audit charter, the DAI provides independent and objective auditing at the CNRS of :

  • compliance with regulations and contractual commitments,
  • the implementation of governance decisions,
  • the effectiveness of processes and adequacy of internal control.

It recommends actions for improvement in the areas audited and ensures the implementation thereof. The DAI does not review research and its work is not within the scope of scientific evaluation.

The Internal Audit Committee 

The DAI bases its work on input from the Internal Audit Committee. This is made up of people from outside the CNRS and chaired by an administrator. It informs the Management Board about the CNRS's knowledge of risks and its efforts to control them.
