Bureau of Internal Review & Audit

Our mission is to enhance and protect organizational value by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice and insight. Experts within the Bureau of Internal Review and Audit (BIRA) complete audits and reviews to determine compliance of State and Department of Human Services policies and procedures. We also perform fraud investigations, conflict of interest reviews, information technology audits and performance audits.

What is Fraud?
“Any illegal act characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust. These acts are not dependent upon the threat of violence or physical force. Frauds are committed by parties and organizations to obtain money, property, or services to avoid payment or loss of services; or to secure personal or business advantage.” – The Institute of Internal Auditors International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing

Reporting Fraud
Department of Human Services employees, our providers, clients and others have a duty to report instances of suspected fraud or illegal business practices to BIRA so that we may investigate.

If you become aware of issues of potential fraud, illegal practices or related misconduct please call 801-538-9895 to speak directly with the BIRA Audit Director or email us at bira@utah.gov.
