"10 Best Practices for Audit Fieldwork Execution"

How are internal auditors perceived in your organization -- as allies or adversaries? Fieldwork is a key time to build relationships of mutual trust with your audit clients, which in turn will lead to better collaboration and improved audit outcomes. These fieldwork resources will help you approach your next audit engagement in a more relationship-driven, efficient way.

Fieldwork performed correctly and efficiently is crucial to a successful audit. Unfortunately, internal audit often carries a reputation as a regulator only interested in uncovering problems and delivering bad news. This negative perception can lead to apprehension around the audit for clients, especially if it’s their first time being audited.

Combat audit fatigue and create a smoother experience for you and your auditees with this resource, which includes tips for building positive, trusted advisor relationships and 10 ways to streamline the fieldwork phase to avoid common pitfalls.

These 10 best practices include:

  • Setting expectations early in the process.
  • Proactively scheduling out status update meetings.
  • Testing complex areas and areas with prior audit findings first.
  • Being in sync with your audit clients as you present findings.
  • Rotating team members for fresh eyes on the project.
