Pulling together a well rounded Internal Audit Annual Plan.

Internal Audit Annual Plan Template

At the start of the year, we released our Guidance document on the Annual Planning process along with accompanying templates. You can visit our Guidance Hub for all the details on the Annual Planning process. Our Guidance document provides and overview of the end to end Annual Planning process, of which the Internal Audit Annual Plan is one of the stages.


The Internal Audit Annual Plan is a central document. It outlines the plan for the current year, where audit activity is going to be performed, and how this contributes to the bigger picture. It will be referred to numerous times throughout the year by the audit committee, executive, and audit team alike. Given this, its important that the document not online is easy to understand, but also provide sufficient detail for a multitude of audiences.
