Our approach is centred on the practices of the profession with an emphasis on corporate governance, risk management and control. Conforming to the International Standards requires that regular, independent EQAs are carried out at least once every five years. As the standard-setters, we’re ideally placed to support you in conducting an EQA review of your operation.
We offer a range of services from comprehensive in-depth reviews and self-assessment options to tailored consultancy.
Together, we’ll work closely with you to discuss ideas as they arise to ensure there are no surprises along the way. We will offer you support but also challenge and we will always offer new ideas and suggestions for continuous improvement.
We work with a variety of organisations across a stream of sectors ranging from FTSE100 companies to charities and private and public sector bodies.
Raise your profile and promote the work you do.
The majority of work we carry out for you will be onsite, giving you an opportunity to raise your profile and the profile of internal audit within your organisation.
Benchmark your activities against best practice. You will receive regular feedback during the process and, on completion, you’ll be able to:
Our reviewers will provide a full EQA that involves surveys and interviews with the head of internal audit, internal audit staff, audit committee members, customers and stakeholders. This is supported by an examination of the internal audit approach and methodology leading to the completion of an independent report.
Are you planning an EQA or new in post? Our readiness assessment will help you prepare for a full EQA and give your internal audit function a 'health check'. We’ll look at the foundations and attributes of your internal audit function and highlight potential risks to your conformance with the Standards. They will also offer guidance on how to address these issues and improve effectiveness.
We will validate the self-assessment carried out by the head of internal audit. We will review evidence and conduct interviews with senior management and the chair of the audit committee.
Prove you conform to the standards and validate the enhancements you've made since your last review. We’ll assess your implementation of EQA action points and acknowledge the progress you've made. Members can benefit from a free self-assessment check list, a great resource to help prepare for an EQA or to benchmark the quality of your current internal audit process. Get the checklist
