Audit management: Building confidence in the business

Provide assurance across your organization that risk management, governance, internal control processes and policies are operating effectively.

What does ‘good’ look like?

A good audit management program provides assurance across the organization that risk management, governance, and internal control processes and polices are operating effectively. Because such a program helps managers make smart decisions, it also increases productivity, provides greater accountability and enhances work practices.

  • Audit plans are prioritized for processes, systems and vendors which pose the highest business risk.
  • Critical audit findings are escalated quickly with information to justify urgent remedial action.
  • Audit responses are managed efficiently and tracked through to completion.
  • Management has assurance that policies and processes are operating effectively.
