Key Questions for Audit Committees to Ask About Internal Audit


An effective relationship between the audit committee and internal auditors is fundamental to the success of the Internal Audit function.

Internal audit will be more successful if the chief audit executive (CAE) understands the expectations of the audit committee and management and if expectations are aligned.

This questionnaire is designed to assist audit committees in their evaluation of Internal Audit and the CAE.
