The development of the audit universe and risk model
is the foundation of the internal audit strategic plan, ensuring
an effective risk-based internal audit.
Based on the preliminary risk assessment, we develop
a comprehensive internal audit plan.
The internal audit strategic plan that we establish will be presented,
discussed and approved by Management and the Board of Directors.
The audit programs constitute our written plan of inspection, observation, confirmation, and inquiry that details the steps to gather the evidential matter required by auditing standards.
As internal auditors, we must document our activity. The most important objective of documentation is to provide a record of information that supports the information presented in the final internal audit report.
The audit report is the key deliverable of the internal audit. It reflects the quality of the audit work performed and the judgment and integrity of the role of audit in the organization. The internal audit report content will include an executive summary, our audit conclusion, our observations, the identified causes, related impacts/risks, recommendations and proposals for corrective actions, management responses and deadlines.
