Integrated Audit Process

The Internal Audit Division’s (IAD) integrated audit engagements combine operational and IT audit procedures to review and evaluate potential risks resulting from weaknesses in business practice or information technology controls. We typically perform integrated audits when a business process or function is heavily dependent on the integrity of digitally stored data, availability, and reliability of applications systems. For example, an audit of our human resource (HR) functions and processes may integrate operational and IT tests and reviews to ensure sound business processes and accurate information from underlying enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems that processes and stores the HR data on a daily basis.
