About Government Internal Audit Agency
The Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA) was established as an Executive Agency of HM Treasury on 1 April 2015, and is the specialist provider of internal audit services to central government.
The Agency’s strategic intent is to develop a leading edge, comprehensive audit service for government by bringing previously separate audit functions together. We currently provide internal audit and assurance services across 14 Government Departments and many of their arm’s length bodies.
Currently, we have about 450 people, including support staff, who work flexibly across our client base and in regional offices at 65 locations across the UK. Most of the client-facing staff are qualified internal auditors and/or accountants, and around one third of staff are based in London. The Agency has an exciting future and we will continue to expand.
