ACUA Audit Interactive 2023

Join our higher education specialists in Denver for a collaborative educational experience at the Association of College and University Auditors (ACUA) Audit Interactive 2023 conference. Baker Tilly is presenting the following session:

Performing a behavioral intervention team risk assessment and audit

Monday, March 27, 2023
8 – 9:40 a.m. MST

With increased attention and resources dedicated to student mental health and well-being in higher education, institutions have developed behavioral intervention teams (BITs) to perform threat assessments for potential students of concern. Given the inherent risks associated with student mental health and threat assessment, in addition to understanding its impact on student success and retention, it can be difficult to know where to focus limited internal audit resources in this area. One method to gain coverage is to perform a BIT risk assessment and audit.

Join us to learn how to plan and scope this assessment at your institution. We will discuss potential objectives to inform your scope and approach, as well as risk areas and factors to keep in mind during the audit planning process. We will present previous audit case studies, including leading practices, recommendations for oversight structures and potential opportunities for improvement that could result from performing a BIT risk assessment and audit.

Learning objectives:
  • Discuss how to plan and scope a behavioral intervention team (e.g., threat assessment team) risk assessment and audit
  • Identify potential risk and focus areas for detailed review, analysis and testing
  • Draft a work plan and other key templates to perform a BIT risk assessment and audit
  • Ashley Deihr, CPA, CIA, CFE, Partner, Higher Education Risk Advisory, Baker Tilly
  • Tiffany Krause, Manager, Higher Education Risk Advisory, Baker Tilly

We look forward to connecting with you in Denver!
