See Public Sector Audit Report Transparency Clearly with New Guidance
The IIA has issued new guidance related to ensuring the transparency of audit reports in the public sector. Transparency of the Internal Audit Report in the Public Sector is based on a study that includes feedback from 160 public sector audit leaders from 14 countries across five continents.
Among other insights, respondents to the study’s survey relayed information about whom they share their audit reports with both internally and externally, whether they are mandated by law to do so, how they make the information available, and what constitutes a timely release of information. The guidance has a wide reaching audience. It can be of use to boards, audit committees, senior management, chief audit executives, legislators, information controllers, and other governance professionals.
