The economic uncertainties of recent years have focused attention on the role and the value of the audit.
More than ever, we need to be able to articulate clearly and consistently what audit quality means to us, as well as being able to demonstrate how we safeguard the quality of the service we provide.
We feel it is important to underline and reconfirm our values and those things we stand for: to lead by example, work together, respect the individual, seek the facts and provide insights as well as to be committed to our communities. The quality and integrity of our people and our work is paramount to everything we do at KPMG.
To ensure every partner and employee concentrates on the skills and behaviors needed to deliver an appropriate, robust and independent opinion, we have developed a global Audit Quality Framework. The seven drivers in this framework provide us with a common language to describe what we believe drives audit quality, and importantly, to highlight how every partner and staff member at KPMG contributes to the delivery of audit quality.
