Why Choose KCG?

Higher Education institutions become members of KCG because it’s an innovative way of sharing services and costs. We provide the full range of internal audit, risk management, governance and advisory services while ensuring high quality and value.

Our enhanced value internal audit reporting
By being part of the company, members are able to receive insights from us on best practice seen at other institutions.

Our strategic impact internal audit is second to none
The KCG audit and risk assurance service is proactive and looks forward, challenging institutions to improve. The service takes a risk-based focus across all institutional activity so it can best identify and advise on potential opportunities and improvement of services.

We’re not for profit and cost effective
All costs are shared between the member institutions in proportion to the amount of work you need. KCG is not profit-making from its membership; there is exemption from VAT on most of our costs within the cost sharing group arrangement.

We charge a composite daily rate for all services. This allows us to allocate staff to an audit regardless of seniority and means that we do not need to push work down to relatively inexperienced or unqualified staff in order to meet company profit targets.

We’re embedded within Higher Education
KCG’s competitive edge is its ability to provide genuinely tailored in-house internal audit and risk assurance services at a competitive cost/price to its member institutions.

KCG is quality assured
KCG’s Internal Audit Services are designed to comply with Public Sector Internal Audit Standards, performed in accordance with the law and are aligned to the requirements in the CUC Code for Audit Committees.  We regularly review our own services to ensure we’re still complying with professional standards.

We have effective governance through the KCG Board
KCG members can play a role in guiding the strategic direction of the KCG internal audit service whilst ensuring operational independence is maintained.
