  8. Audit or Systems Analysis? • “A property audit is a systematic, objective review and evaluation of an organization’s property control system, which includes the organization’s established procedures and its application of, implementation of, and compliance with those procedures.” • Management may think that they have the right procedures…

  9. Key is Written Procedures • Written procedures form the foundation of the Property Control System. It is in these procedures that every organization employee will find precisely what is required of him or her in the use, maintenance, and preservation of property. • Equally indispensible is the consistent, conscientious application of those procedures. Written procedures that are not followed are functionally equivalent to no procedures at all.
