Your guide to the Internal Audit Process
Here's everything that you need to ensure your audits align to the Standards.
The Global Institute of Internal Auditors have put together standards, aimed at guiding adherence with the mandatory components of the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), providing a framework for performing audits, establishing a basis for evaluation and, encouraging improved business processes and operations. We have developed a range of Internal Audit templates based on the requirements of the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing.

A downloadable version of our Auditing to the Standards Guide;
A step by step breakdown of each phase of the Internal Audit Process, with links to the various templates; and
Links to the IIA's 'International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. (Standards).
As always, this is only one way of performing annual planning, and any planning activities should be appropriate and relevant to the organisation.
