​Guidance-setting Processes and Due Diligence

The International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF)® is the conceptual framework that organizes authoritative guidance promulgated by The IIA. The scope of the IPPF is only authoritative guidance developed by an IIA international technical committee following appropriate due process. Technical committees are those committees and boards reporting to the Professional Guidance Advisory Council (International Internal Auditing Standards Board, Professional Issues Committee, Global Ethics Committee, and Public Sector Committee).
