The UCMSA Universalis Independent Body (IB) is the official committee that audits the books of Universalis’ Social Board and Academic Council. Besides the financial audit, the IB also evaluates the legitimacy of expenses and in accordance with the guidelines in the Policy Manual and Statutes.
During Universalis’ General Assemblies and presidential elections, the IB is responsible for supervising voting procedures; in addition, IB members sit in with interviews for applications for both the Social Board and Academic Council.
As the name says, this committee – consisting of a maximum of 5 members – is an independent body within the Universalis organisations: its findings and conclusions cannot be refuted. What it aims at is to give all Universalis members a transparent overview of what the board is doing. Furthermore, the IB will handle any complaints about the board’s decisions in complete confidentiality.
If you’re interested to hear more about our findings and recommendations, don’t hesitate to write us, or approach one of us in person!
