Benefiting the Public Sector Through Knowledge and Innovation

The Internal Audit Network (TIAN) is a professional network of NHS based internal audit providers, bringing together collective thinking to add greater value to our clients. TIAN is a membership network with a unique understanding and insight of the public sector, working with an NHS ethos aligned to public sector values. Our collective positioning across England and strong NHS client base continues to support valuable benchmarking and sharing of best practice.

On national and emerging issues, TIAN provides a vehicle to coordinate and channel professional opinion, working with key stakeholders to influence and engage on a national footprint. TIAN facilitates collaboration between providers and covers all aspects of  internal audit including a wide range of associated specialist services such as anti fraud, governance, assurance, security and risk management.

  • An ability to effectively communicate service outcomes, findings and recommendations.
  • Implementation of effective internal control and good practice.
