Operational and Performance Auditing - Online Classroom

Delivery Method
Online: Zoom

Operational and Performance Auditing - Online Classroom

Also known as 'value for money' or 'performance auditing', operational auditing is increasingly recognised as enhancing the role of the internal audit profession as trusted advisors to senior management.

Introducing operational/performance auditing into the internal audit toolkit will built a more mature, resilient, useful and better equipped internal audit function. It will also provide better support for senior management and executive boards and advisory functions such as the audit advisory committees.

The concepts of economy, efficiency and effectiveness - commonly referred to as the three Es - form the basis of operational/performance auditing. Operational/performance auditing is a means of assisting management in improving its operations, not just identifying problems or weaknesses. These audits can help organisations become more efficient, drive better performance and provide more value.

Tangible Outcomes
This training will explore the key differences for internal auditors to other types of audits, the most significant being developing the assignment plan. At the end of this training, participants will understand how to:

  • Identify topics for operational/performance auditing
  • Apply an operational/performance audit methodology
  • Create the evaluation design for an operational/performance audit
  • Apply additional audit methods in fieldwork
  • Validate and report findings.

Presenter: Stephen Horne, PFIIA CIA CGAP CRMA, Principal, Checks, Balances & Integrity
