Norman Marks September 02, Comments Views Page Image Page Content People have been struggling with the challenge of writing effective internal audit reports since the dawn of time. A number of books have been written on the topic and every year experts lead classes.
But, I think many if not most have missed the point: We should communicate what our stakeholders need to know, not what we want to say. Tales From My Journey. It is revealing that the IIA Standards do not require an audit report! StandardCommunicating Results, simply says "Internal auditors must communicate the results of engagements.
Instead, it is a communication vehicle. It is the traditional way internal audit communicates what management and the board need to know about the results of our work.
The audit report is not for our benefit as internal auditors.
It is not a way to document our work and demonstrate how thorough we were. It is for the benefit of the readers of the report, management, and when I was CAE the audit committee. It tells them what they need to know, which is typically whether there is anything they need to worry about. StandardQuality of Communications, says "Communications must be accurate, objective, clear, concise, constructive, complete, and timely.
Concise communications are to the point and avoid unnecessary elaboration, superfluous detail, redundancy, and wordiness. Constructive communications are helpful to the engagement client and the organization and lead to improvements where needed.
Complete communications lack nothing that is essential to the target audience and include all significant and relevant information and observations to support recommendations and conclusions.
Mario Antoci, the President of the company, received a copy of our internal audit reports. He tasked his executive secretary with reading every report and highlighting the sections he needed to read.
If there was nothing meriting his attention in the report, it was filed. If there were items of significance, she brought that to his attention straight away. My initial thought was that I would highlight the audit reports for the board and top executives. But then I asked myself why the audit report had sections that they didn't need to read.
I talked to my key stakeholders in management and on the audit committee and listened carefully so I could understand what they needed to hear after an audit was completed.
I heard them say that they wanted to know the answers to two questions: Is there anything they need to worry about? Are there any issues of such significance that somebody in senior management should be monitoring how and when they are addressed? In other words, they wanted to manage by exception.
They were going to trust internal audit and operating management to address routine issues; they didn't want to waste their time my expression; they didn't actually use those words on matters that didn't merit their attention.How To: Share Your Findings - Clinical Audit Report & Presentation • When using abbreviations and acronyms it is good practice to write these out in full in the first instance.
