2015 GLOBAL AUDIT COMMITTEE SURVEY

To help identify the key challenges and concerns facing audit committees, boards, and their companies today, KPMG’s Audit Committee Institute surveyed some 1,500 audit committee members in more than 36 countries.

A range of timely issues were explored including:

  • The audit committee’s workload and agenda
  • Risk and information quality
  • Oversight of auditors
  • Audit committee effectiveness and mechanics

Our survey identifies broad international trends and provides detailed country data on audit committee challenges and concerns in different geographies.

As directors help guide their companies forward in the months ahead, our survey findings can serve as an important reference – for benchmarking current practices, identifying gaps and emerging risks, and sparking fresh conversations about how audit committees and boards are strengthening their oversight and keeping pace in an uncertain and, at times, volatile business environment.
