KIS Briefing | 2014 | 12 Internal Audit Recommendation A consistent approach is undertaken across the University to regularly monitor that these two sources (AIS and module handbooks) of information are aligned, establishing a consistent minimum level of review to be applied by all Faculties and Departments. Individual areas may then apply further review on a risk and materiality basis. KIS Briefing | 2014 | 13 How often do you check data/information currently? 1. Once a year for KIS 2.
