Managing Audit Quality and Workpapers - In-Person

Managing Audit Quality and Workpapers - In-Person

Is your quality control framework leading to the creation of quality workpapers that support your audit reports?


One of the goals of an internal audit project is to improve an organization's overall ability to function effectively. This goal is accomplished through the identification of control weaknesses, potential process improvements, and positive change opportunities.


Audit workpapers facilitate this process by enabling auditors to document work performed from the planning stage to the final closing meeting.


Workpaper objectives include:

- Document the planning, performance, and review of audit work.

- Provide the principal support for audit communication such as observations, conclusions, and the final report.

- Facilitate third-party reviews and re-performance requirements.

- Provide a basis for evaluating the internal audit activities and quality control program.


Each attendee will receive 8 CPE Hours (YB). A certificate of completion will be provided.
