This audit shall be performed under the direction of the audit committee, audit manager, senior level officer, or independent (external) examiner or auditor of the Participating DFI or third-party service provider. The Participating DFI must retain proof that they have completed an audit of compliance in accordance with these rules. Documentation supporting the completion of an audit must be (1) retained for a period of six years from the date of the audit, and (2) provided to NACHA upon request.
