2020 North American Pulse of Internal Audit

​The Audit Executive Center has gathered insight from leaders in the profession through the annual Pulse of Internal Audit Survey since 2011​. Each survey collects information about both established and emerging issues that are important to the profession as well as information about internal audit management (such as areas of focus, staff, and budget levels).

2020 North American Pulse of Internal AuditBridging Critical Gaps

The 2020 North American Pulse of Internal Audit goes back to its roots. Internal audit leaders will find a renewed and deeper focus on audit plan allocations, risk levels, staffing, reporting lines, and audit function maturity. I urge you to read this year’s Pulse report alongside the 2019 American Corporate Governance Index (ACGI) and OnRisk 2020 report. Taken together, these publications offer a comprehensive picture of key risks, the health of organizational governance, and the state of the internal audit profession.
