Guidance on internal audit outsourcing and shared services

This subcommittee identifies alternatives that listed agencies, and entities that do not currently have internal audit units, can use to ensure appropriate internal audit coverage. The group analyzes the results of previous shared service arrangements – both in the audit area and in other operational functions – to identify best practices and opportunities for increasing efficiency and coverage. The group also gathers information on the potential cost, quality and extent of coverage that may be available through outsourcing. Study findings are shown here .
