Description of business unit

Group Internal Audit (GIA), together with Credit Review, forms the 3rd line of defence for the Bank of Ireland Group. GIA's purpose is 'Helping Make Bank of Ireland Better'. To fulfil this purpose, GIA carries out risk based assignments, covering Group businesses and functions (including third party outsourcing providers, subject to the right to audit). GIA also provides additional insight through its attendance at key governance fora and committees. Key partners include the Board (Court), the Group Audit Committee (GAC), the Court Risk Committee (CRC), key subsidiaries' audit and risk committees and senior management, as well as other key parties, including the Group's regulators and external auditors. GIA's findings are communicated to senior management and other key stakeholders, with remediation plans monitored for progress against agreed completion dates.
