Our internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.
Internal auditing is a catalyst for improving an organization’s effectiveness and efficiency by providing insight and recommendations based on analyses and assessments of data and business processes. With commitment to integrity and accountability, internal auditing provides value to governing bodies and senior management as an objective source of independent advice. The scope of internal auditing within an organization is broad and may involve topics such as the efficacy of operations, the reliability of financial reporting, deterring and investigating fraud, safeguarding assets, and compliance with laws and regulations.
Internal auditing frequently involves measuring compliance with the entity’s policies and procedures. However, we are not responsible for the execution of company activities; we advise management and the Board of Directors (or similar oversight body) regarding how to better execute their responsibilities.
Publicly-traded corporations typically have an internal auditing department, led by a Chief Audit Executive (“CAE”) who generally reports to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, with administrative reporting to the Chief Executive Officer.
