  11. Essential Services • Internal auditing reviews the reliability and integrity of information, compliance with policies and regulations, the safeguarding of assets, the economical and efficient use of resources, and established operational goals and objectives. Internal audits encompass financial activities and operations including systems, production, engineering, marketing, and human resources. Can you afford to be without it?

  12. IPPF – Standards Mandatory Guidance 2120-Risk Management The internal audit activity must evaluate the effectiveness and contribute to the improvement of risk management processes. Interpretation: Determining whether risk management processes are effective is a judgment resulting from the internal auditor's assessment that: Organizational objectives support and align with the organization's mission; Significant risks are identified and assessed; Appropriate risk responses are selected that align risks with the organization's risk appetite; and Relevant risk information is captured and communicated in a timely manner across the organization, enabling staff, management, and the board to carry out their responsibilities. The internal audit activity may gather the information to support this assessment during multiple engagements. The results of these engagements, when viewed together, provide an understanding of the organization’s risk management processes and their effectiveness. Risk management processes are monitored through ongoing management activities, separate evaluations, or both.
