What does an audit involve?

Share this page

The audit will involve discussions with staff and we will review documents so that we understand the system or process being audited. As well as discussions and review of documents, we will carry out some tests to see how systems and processes work in practice. Depending on the audit, we may sometimes request downloads of transaction data to test. As we build an understanding of your processes we will suggest potential improvements and explore whether unnecessary controls can be removed. We aim to identify practical and cost effective recommendations which take into account examples of good practice operating elsewhere.

We welcome your input at each stage of the audit, and are always pleased to answer any questions you may have.
