Co-sourcing or out-sourcing internal audit work can reduce costs, free up capital, and enhance your ability to focus on what you do best.
Co-source or out-source your internal audit work
With organisations being driven to do more with less, the internal audit (IA) function has become a prime candidate for strategic sourcing. Achieving effective IA capabilities requires a significant level of investment in skilled resources, methods, training and technical infrastructure.
We provide the following services:
Internal Audit Outsourcing Services
KPMG can advise you on critical business risks, implementation of effective controls and compliance processes, identifying better practices, reducing the cost of operations and realizing the profit improvement opportunities.
Out-sourced internal audit function
We can supplement an organisation’s existing internal audit capabilities, providing specialised skill sets and undertaking on-off audit assignments.
Professional Internal Audit resourcing
We can provide appropriately skilled and experienced audit professionals to undertake the work under the direction of an organisation’s internal audit function. These engagements may be undertaken on a one-off or on a continuing basis.
Quality Assurance Reviews of an in-house internal audit function
Our methodology focuses on three key areas - Positioning, People and Processes. Positioning focuses on the alignment of stakeholder expectations, the impact that the Internal Audit Department has within the organisation. We review the Internal Audit linkage to key management forums/ communications and interview a cross-section of senior managers and the Board to assess the visibility and impact across the organisation. People aspects focus on competencies and reward. Processes focus on risk assessment, planning, and execution of audits, reporting and follow-up.
