MSUFCU recognized for innovation by the Association of Credit Union Internal Auditors

EAST LANSING, MI (October 2, 2018) — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is pleased to announce a second place award for its internal audit department team by the Association of Credit Union Internal Auditor’s (ACUIA) annual Best Audit Practice contest.  The award recognizes the Credit Union’s internal audit team for creating and implementing an audit engagement checklist to improve the audit process.

“This is an outstanding recognition for our internal audit team,” said Jim Hunsanger, MSUFCU’s Chief Risk Officer. “Rob Johnson, our Chief Internal Auditor, and his skilled team of audit professionals showed much initiative creating a comprehensive audit checklist to ensure we are performing at the highest level.”

A best audit practice is defined by ACUIA as any auditing routine, procedure, audit program step, or audit technique developed to contribute to an effective audit or cover an administrative function for an audit department. Criteria for selecting winners included originality, ability to implement or use/reuse, adaptability to the credit union size, overall value to the credit union, and the value to the audit department.
