UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA INTERNAL AUDIT PLAN 2000-01 NARRATIVE & ASSUMPTIONS UCSD
______________________________________________________________________________
1.  Available Hours— Considering our historical vacancy rate, the budget is based on a staff of 13 FTE for the year. We have just recruited for the programmer analyst position and decided not to fill the vacant Auditor IV position. The salary savings will be used for an equity increase for those auditors and audit managers whose salary falls below the average salary range for their classification and auditing experience.
 “Other Resources” are not included in the plan at this time. However, if open positions remain vacant longer than anticipated, we will continue to contract with a local CPA firm for audit services on an as needed basis.  2.  Indirect Hours — Indirect hours are comparable to staff allocations for vacation and projected sick leave based on actual annual accrual amounts. Controllable indirect hours are based on 80 hours of training per employee and a minimum amount of administrative time.
While the Director has more time allocated to administrative activities than other staff, the majority of her time is allocated to direct audit activities.  3.  Audit Program— Our plan includes 100% coverage of the top 10 highest risk rated areas and 85% coverage of the next 10 highest risk ranked areas for the campus and the hospital. The majority of the coverage of high-risk areas is scheduled in the form of traditional audits.
We have planned 2,335 hours, or 10% of direct hours, in Supplemental Audits. This figure is well under the percentage spent for the first half of 1999/2000 fiscal year. While our campus typically receives a considerable number of audits requested by management during the year, we hope to use these hours to cover the index areas that have received relatively high risk rankings, but which have not been included in our plan due to resource constraints.
4. Advisory Services— Time in advisory services was allocated based on past experience and expectations for the coming year. The largest percent of time in this category is devoted to External Audit Coordination. The hours in these categories were allocated based on historical patterns.  5.  Investigations— Hours allocated to this category are based on current and past trends. They will be affected by the level of activity of theHotline which will start a second year of operation as of 7/1/2000.
6.  Support Activities— Support activity time is based on historical data.
7.  
 8.  9.  
Total Direct Hours & Percent— Direct hours planned are 85% of net available hours for the fiscal year and are broken down as follows: ·  51% of net available hours are dedicated for the Audit Program; ·  18% for advisory services; ·  11% for investigations; and ·  5% for audit support activities.  Time Phasing Assumptions— Quarterly scheduling variances were projected based on historical analysis of indirect and direct data, as well as a future analysis based on our plans for the coming year.
Other Matters— The biggest variable that will drive our ability to complete the annual plan is the stability of our staffing level. In the past, we have had considerableturnover which has affected productivity.
