Audit Report Writing

The art of audit report writing demands far more than simply listing the four elements of a finding: criteria, condition, cause, and effect. Skilled auditors require a method that aligns what they experienced during the reviewing process with what they compose during the writing process.

This webinar offers a deep and useful toolbox of techniques that auditors can use when noting audit observations, drafting objective workpapers, and composing well-structured, detailed, and fluent audit reports.

The program begins with a case study to illustrate each element of an audit checklist with a close focus on objective reporting. It then uncovers problems of ensuring validity and reliability of findings and determining root cause. The webinar then drills down to a deeper level to organize audit content based on time-tested principles of structure.

The rest of the session covers the two pillars of writing style: syntax (word order) and diction (word choice) - each of which poses numerous pitfalls that can compromise the integrity and objectivity of an audit report.

Reviewing understandable, pertinent examples from various auditing disciplines, you will learn how to remedy the greatest roadblocks to clear thinking through writing and how to cultivate a convincing, authoritative style. You will leave this webinar with excellent resources that you can continually turn to during intense, complex audit engagements.

Covered Topics:

  • Determine factors affecting the validity and reliability of a finding
  • Assess the appropriate level of detail
  • Create a department-specific template to facilitate the writing process
  • Draft workpapers based on objective observations
  • Employ formatting devices to improve the visual appeal of an audit report
  • Choose fluent sentence structure to illuminate ideas
  • Develop a precise, clear, concise vocabulary for documenting audit reports
Who Should Attend

Managerial or auditing staff who write audit reports on programs or business units for internal and external clients or regulatory agencies.
