The mission of the Internal Audit Division is to help achieve and maintain sound internal control and governance in the Bank. Its primary goals are to:
- provide auditing services to the Bank's management that are timely, effective and relevant;

The Division assists the Bank in achieving its objective of improving governance and risk management through the enhancement of enterprise-wide risk management and improving operational efficiency in the Bank. The purpose, authority and responsibilities of the Division are defined in the Internal Audit Charter, approved by the Board on an annual basis.
