Internal Audit Foundation
Internal Audit…Timely. Relevant. Insightful.

As an internal audit professional, you want to become known as the trusted advisor within your sphere of influence. But the challenge to stay ahead of ever-changing regulations and keep abreast of best practices can be daunting.

At the Internal Audit Foundation, we exist to help audit leaders, practitioners, students, and academics experience continuous growth in their careers to propel them to become respected as trusted advisers as well as thought leaders within the industry.

For the last four decades, our former name — The IIA Research Foundation — was synonymous with research, knowledge, and insights into the profession. But we are more than research. Relying solely on the generous donations of our contributors and sponsors, we chose our new name to reflect and capture the essence of why we exist and what we want to accomplish.

Like you, we’re constantly evolving to meet the demands of our stakeholders. Learn more about the Foundation.
