Whether electing a full external assessment or a self-assessment with independent external validation, a 质素保证检讨(QAR) allows audit committees and chief audit executives to evaluate the activities of their internal audit (IA) function and determine whether policies, procedures and practices of the function adhere to The Institute of Internal Auditors’ (The IIA) Core Principles, International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) and the Code of Ethics.

Our experienced professionals leverage our Internal Audit Strategic Framework to assess your internal audit function’s activities against leading practices of other internal audit functions we have observed, and provide insights and recommendations to elevate the performance and value of the function to stakeholders.

Schneider Downs’s Internal Audit Strategic Framework

Our QAR professionals are required to meet the qualification requirements as defined in Standard 1312 – qualified, independent reviewer or review team from outside the organization. The Standard defines qualified individuals as persons with the technical proficiency, business experience and educational background appropriate for the audit activities to be reviewed. For this reason, QARs are conducted by the management of our practice. In addition, many of our QAR professionals also have experience in industry within internal audit functions and have also served as a Chief Audit Executive (CAE) so they know the challenges of leading an IA function and thus will provide practical, 适当时提供非理论建议.
