How do you know your internal audit function is providing value to the organization? Astute audit committees and savvy Chief Audit Executives look to accredited professionals for an internal audit quality assurance review.
According to the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) standards, external assessments such as a quality assurance review, should be conducted at least once every five years by a qualified, independent reviewer or review team from outside the organization. The quality assurance review ensures that an organization’s internal audit program meets the expectations of the IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Audit.
A quality assurance review from Wipfli can help provide insight into performance gaps and evaluate conformance with internal audit standards. We also provide recommendations for improving your internal audit function.
