Benchmarking Report

Audit Intelligence Suite – Benchmarking Report

The Audit Intelligence Suite – Benchmarking Report (formerly Global Audit Information Network® [GAIN] Benchmarking Tool) allows you to easily benchmark your internal audit department, affordably, and transparently. You can compare your audit department’s size, experience, and other metrics against the averages of similar organizations in peer groups that you choose (from among 17 categories containing a total of 689 metrics*).

Access your organization's AIS Account, or create one.

*All metrics must reach our statistical significance threshold. Upon ordering your report, the system will automatically verify if it has reached this threshold.

The Audit Intelligence Suite (AIS) is available to Audit Executive Center (AEC) Members, IIA members, and non-members. You do not have to be an AEC member to participate in the benchmarking questionnaire or to purchase a benchmarking report.

Benchmark metrics include:

  • Employee Compensation.​
  • Organizational statistics.
  • Department staffing and costs.
  • Oversight including audit committee information.
  • Operational measures, including audit lifecycles.
  • Performance measures.
  • Risk assessment and audit planning information.

Data entered is confidential and is reported only in aggregate form. Identifying information is not publicly disclosed for any of the information entered in our benchmarking questionnaire. Please also refer to our IIA Privacy Policy​. You may also reach out to us directly at if you have additional questions.

Once you make your benchmark metrics selections, the Audit Intelligence Suite can accurately compare your audit activity against comparable departments. Our sophisticated software will validate all data gathered and results compiled. Upon completion of creating the tailored benchmark report, you’ll obtain the invaluable decision support essential to you as a trusted advisor to executive leadership, the board, and other stakeholder groups.
