AuditNet® is looking for internal audit professionals to develop engagement work programs and procedures on a contract basis. AuditNet®, the largest repository of audit work programs and templates, is looking for content including industry specific audit procedures. If you can create risk or internal control matrices, audit program guides, audit procedures or other documentation for conducting compliance, operational or financial audits get in touch with us at info @ auditnet.org. Please include a list of documents you can prepare, the industry relevance, and your experience. Audit documents that include data analytic steps would be given priority.
When developing the work program, internal auditors generally consider the risks in the area or process under review. The work program is based on the engagement objectives and scope. It typically includes resource deployment plans and describes the techniques or methodologies that will be used to conduct the engagement (e.g., sampling techniques). It is important for internal auditors to determine which tests or audit steps are necessary to assess the risks in the area or process under review and to test the existing controls. Additionally, internal auditors should ensure that the tests are specific enough to avoid scope creep.
The format of work programs may vary by engagement or organization. Commonly used formats include standard templates or checklists to document completion of planning steps, memoranda that summarize tasks completed, and additional columns in the risk and control matrix. Well documented work programs assist in communicating roles, responsibilities, and tasks to the members of the engagement team. They may include signoff for completed work, the names of the internal auditors who completed the work, and the date the work was completed.
Here is a quick overview for building an audit program:
- Determine audit subject—What are you auditing? This is often set as part of the overall audit plan.
- Define audit objective—Why are you auditing it? Again, this may have been set as part of the overall audit plan.
- Set audit scope—What are the limits to your audit?
- Perform preaudit planning—What are the specific risk factors?
- Determine audit procedures and steps for data gathering—How will you test the controls for these risk?
