​Assurance Services was formed in March 2017, merging the former Risk and Audit Services with the Project Support Office to consolidate Insurance, Risk Management, Internal Audit, Business Continuity, and Project Support into a single framework applicable across the whole of the University. Jon Dye, Head of Assurance Services, was appointed in March 2017.​
