  3. International Auditing Standards Perspective Government auditing as part of a global context July 2007 - the IIA and Intosai signed a memorandum of understanding stressing: interaction between internal and external audit; common auditing standards. CReCER - El Salvador, June 2008 3

  5. International Auditing Standards Perspective Lima Declaration (1977) sets out, in its Section 3, that: SAIs should assess internal auditor effectiveness; to achieve the most appropriate division or assignment of tasks and co-operation. CReCER - El Salvador, June 2008 5

  6. International Auditing Standards Perspective Underlying assumptions of Lima Declaration prescription: primary responsibility for designing and maintaining internal controls lies on management; internal auditors help management assess the effectiveness of internal controls; external audit work relies and starts from the already existing controls of the entity; before implementation, auditing activities should pass the cost-benefit analysis test; (in the same way as control activities) CReCER - El Salvador, June 2008 6

  7. International Auditing Standards Perspective Conclusion: the intelligent use of the entity control net justifies, allows and even legitimates the external auditing activity as we know it. CReCER - El Salvador, June 2008 7

  8. International Auditing Standards Perspective What does ‘as we know it’ mean? Large number of clients; Diversity of clients; Use of modern audit techniques (including sampling). CReCER - El Salvador, June 2008 8
