Quality Assessment - The IIA Research Foundation Bookstore

Performing an Effective Quality Assessment
 
As an organization grows and its internal processes change and evolve, its quality monitoring process must keep pace. To ensure consistent quality in this dynamic environment, an ongoing commitment to growth and improvement is essential.
 
The required elements of a Quality Assurance and Improvement Program (QAIP) include periodic internal assessments and external assessments to demonstrate conformance with The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. In addition, a quality QAIP can provide evidence to the audit committee and management that the internal audit activity is efficient, effective, and adding value. It can also build stakeholder confidence and document a commitment to quality, leading practices, and the internal auditors’ mindset for professionalism.
