After you receive your introductory letter announcing the audit, we will contact you to schedule an Introductory Meeting. These meetings typically last no longer than an hour and take place at your office, if possible. At this time you have the opportunity to meet the auditor and ask questions about the upcoming audit work and the audit process.
We encourage you to discuss any concerns you may have and any areas or business functions that you would like the auditor to review. During the meeting, we will discuss the potential timeframe for the review, the audit objectives, and the audit logistics (facilities, availability of personnel, primary contacts, etc.).
At this time, you may also provide the staff with the few pieces of information we request before each audit begins- a departmental organization chart, a contact list, and literature describing the department (policies/procedures) if available.
