The Politics of Internal Auditing
Organizations are by definition, political. When it comes to internal auditing and the reality that internal audit results may reflect badly on some individuals, the potential for political pressure on chief audit executives (CAEs) is great.
This research report addresses political pressure on CAEs and their internal audit departments.
Research findings reveal:
- Nearly 55% of North American CAEs surveyed reported being directed to omit or modify an important audit finding at least once.
- 49% reported being directed to not perform audit work in high-risk areas.
- Nearly 32% reported being directed to work in low-risk areas so an executive could investigate or retaliate against another individual.
