Content development opportunities with The IIA.
Content Development Opportunities

The IIA Research Foundation (IIARF) provides opportunities for researchers and authors around the world to develop various product types that impact the internal audit profession.

To be a vital resource for impactful internal audit and related stakeholder research, educational materials, and practical insights, The IIARF supports the development of reports for research projects and educational products.

Research projects focus on discovering new information about the internal audit profession using academic research methods such as surveys, focus groups, interviews, case studies, literature review, and data analysis. Educational products are designed to provide information that internal audit practitioners can use on the job. Educational products often include “how-to” information, tools, and best practices.

Each year, The IIARF identifies priority topics and posts RFPs to the website to solicit proposals. In addition, authors may also submit proposals on topics of their choice. See below for the 2016 postings and further information.

Approaches to Continuous Monitoring and Continuous Auditing
Refresh contemporary content to reflect the dynamic nature of continuous auditing and business monitoring practices in internal auditing.
