By: Staff Report

PEMBROKE — Megan Fees has joined the staff at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke as chief audit officer.

Fees comes to UNCP from the Office of the State Auditor.

“As chief audit officer, Megan plays an important role in ensuring UNC Pembroke’s actions are guided by our core values of accountability and innovation,” Chancellor Robin Gary Cummings said. “She is a valuable resource to help us continually improve our enterprise to best serve our students and region.”

As chief audit officer, Fees wants every department within the university to know that she is there to help. Committing to the success of not only students, but to faculty and staff is what she aims to achieve while at UNC Pembroke.

“We are your internal audit,” Fees said.

She reports functionally to the university’s trustees and administratively to Cummings. Her role is to provide independent, object assurance and consulting services designed to add value and improve the university’s operations.

She will conduct annual planned audits and reviews and assists management with advisory and investigative requests.

A native South Dakota, Fees holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Black Hills State University.

She is a certified internal auditor and fraud examiner.

She and her husband, who is serving his 15th year in the U.S. Army, live in Hope Mills with their two children.
