How to prepare for an Audit
The prospect of an audit can be intimidating to most people; however, it does not need to be. The Department of Internal Auditing works with its audit client through every step of the process to help improve operations and add value to the organization. Familiarizing yourself with the audit process can pave the way to a pleasant and productive audit experience.
The Department of Internal Auditing developed a Departmental Audit process which we review the controls in place to ensure that these risks are appropriately mitigated and managed. In the Departmental Review Guide you can review the objectives, areas of risk and criteria we utilize.
