OVERVIEW
How well you communicate the audit observations is critical to getting management’s acceptance of your findings and their agreement with your recommendations. A well written compliance audit report adds value to your clients by providing information that is:
  • Accurate
  • Objective
  • Clear
  • Concise
  • Constructive
  • Complete
  • Timely
In addition to audit reports, these elements can apply to all kinds of writings including:
  • Executive summaries
  • Fraud investigations
  • Consulting reports
  • Memos
  • General correspondence
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
The objective of any report is to provide important information to management in the area reviewed. It represents the end result of weeks of reviews, analyses, interviews and discussions. The quality of that report will have an impact on how well the report is understood and accepted. A report with the best information and recommendations may not be acted upon if the report is poorly written and hard to understand.
Poor quality reports can result in management:
  • Misunderstanding the information and making the wrong decisions
  • Getting too little information and making poor decisions
  • Getting too much information and wasting valuable time in making decisions
Ideally, the operational audit report should provide management with enough information to understand:
  • What was done
  • What was found
  • What management should do
