  • Serve as a bridge between individual business units and the IT function.
  • Point out previously unidentified risks.
  • Recommend controls for enhancing outcomes.
This Practice Guide includes:
  • Key project management risks.
  • How the internal audit activity can actively participate in the review of projects while maintaining independence.
  • Five key components of IT projects for internal auditors to consider when building an audit approach.
  • Types of project audits.
  • A suggested list of questions for use in the IT project assessment
