Request for a "no obligatory proposal"

The International Standards for the Professional Practices of Internal Auditing (Standards) (the IPPF) mandates that the internal audit activity conducts a Quality Assessment (QA) by an external independent team of qualified audit professionals as one of the acceptable approaches to meeting the requirement of Standard 1312.

UAE IAA’s QA department will provide QA services, qualified independent audit professionals; some of whom are CAEs, Vice Presidents and Senior managers in their organizations with years of experience. These professionals have also been instrumental for having undertaken an external QA for their own internal audit activity in their organization. They are well versed with the standards and have the experience of interacting at the highest levels in an organization. The assessment team works on-site at the offices of the internal audit activity using the Quality Assessment Manual for the Internal Audit Activity to conduct interviews, surveys and benchmarking. They also conduct an in-depth review of the internal audit process and the work papers.

The site visit culminates with a presentation of the findings stating the internal audit activity’s conformance or non-conformance with the Standards and any recommendations for improvement. The final report is issued once the responses from the internal audit activity is received.
