Position Papers

Position Papers assist a wide range of interested parties, including those not in the internal audit profession, in understanding significant governance, risk, or control issues, and delineating the related roles and responsibilities of internal auditing.

While Position Papers are no longer an official part of the New IPPF, these documents are still relevant and valid for practitioners and other interested parties.​
