Internal Audit Quality Assessment

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

Course Overview 

Internal Audit is one of the fundamental check and balances for sound Corporate Governance. Additionally, it bridges the gap between the Board of Directors and Management and assesses the internal environment as well as the efficiency and effectiveness of the Internal Control Systems and operations. Adherence to the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing brings about improved Corporate Governance, transparency and public image, thereby boosting stakeholders’ confidence.

The internal auditors need to assess the activity’s conformance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing and its effectiveness in providing assurance or consulting services to the Organization’s board of directors, senior executives, and other interested parties.


The Quality Assessment of the Internal Audit Activity is a critical process which is provided by the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing, while consisting of the best practice for all successful Internal Audit Units.  The International Institute of Internal Auditors (The IIA) requires that the chief audit executive should develop and maintain a Quality Assurance and Improvement Programme (QAIP) that covers all aspects of the internal audit activity.

ΣΚΟΠΟΣ ΣΕΜΙΝΑΡΙΟΥ

The programme is designed to:

  • Enable an evaluation of the internal audit activity’s conformance with the Definition of Internal Auditing and the Standards, as well as evaluate whether internal auditors apply the Code of Ethics.
  • Assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the Internal Audit activity and identify opportunities for improvements. The Internal Audit’ function Quality Assurance and Improvement programme must include both internal and external assessments, and the main cause of a Quality program comes from asking certain, questions:
  • Can Auditors add more value to Senior Management and the Audit Committee?
  • Is maximum value received for the resources expended?
  • Does Internal Audit meet International Professional Standards?
  • Are Auditors aligned with the Organization’s strategy?
  • Can audits be done better and enhance their image, credibility and influence?

Through this programme participants will attain the knowhow to assist in complying with the International Standards while executing their audits, to realize the importance and benefits of the Quality Assurance and Improvement Programme and finally to determine their level of readiness for an External Quality Assessment Review. Specifically, participants will:

  • Attain knowledge about the Professional Practices Framework.
  • Understand the impact of the Quality Assurance Standards and the mandatory External Assessment requirements.
  • Discover state-of-the-art quality assessment techniques and processes.
  • Identify best practices and key benchmarking criteria that separate top performing internal audit activities from the rest of the pack.
  • Develop or enhance your department’s internal quality assessment program.
  • Prepare your department for a future external assessment.
  • Explore the new Self-Assessment with Independent Validation process.
