Do you audit first and worry about the report at the end of the project? Maybe you’ve realized that no amount of editing will fix a finding that went off the rails. In this course, we will look at the critical components of an audit report and how to create them – as you audit – so that the reporting process is easy – and dare we say it? – fun!
Frequent references to performance audit standards promulgated by the IIA and the GAO will keep us grounded.
Course objectives include:
  • Generate concise and logical findings in an hour or less
  • Choose methodologies that support performance audit report conclusions and findings
  • Choose the strongest content for your finding
  • Draft your audit findings and imagine your conclusions at the end of planning
  • Format the risk assessment so that it generates critical information for your report
  • Recognize dangerous tone and language
  • Establish expectations and guidelines for creating a compelling finding
  • Focusing the report conclusion on a finite, answerable objective
