Dear IIA Member: As a director of advocacy for The Institute of Internal Auditors, it’s my privilege to connect with our vast membership throughout the year, but especially during the month of May, International Internal Audit Awareness Month. It’s during this time that many of you are working extra hard to promote your profession by educating others about the value of internal auditing. Advocacy is all about instilling pride in the internal audit profession, encouraging change, and building relationships with organizations and stakeholders that impact the profession globally. The IIA encourages you to see yourself as an advocate and actively promote internal auditing. Over the years, The IIA has intensified its advocacy efforts, with the goal of having the business community recognize, accept, and understand internal auditing. The Institute seeks to have standard-setting bodies, oversight bodies, regulators, and other stakeholders acknowledge or endorse The International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing and view internal auditing as a cornerstone of effective governance. What’s more, we’ve brought on a new resource to help with our advocacy efforts. Karen Livingstone joined us recently as an advocacy director and will help to bolster our efforts to promote the profession. We are happy to have her as part of our advocacy team. This issue’s inspiring feature story, “Spread the Word,” on page 6, offers a variety of suggestions for advocating for internal auditing in the workplace, in your community, and in nearby schools. To learn more about The IIA’s global advocacy strategy and to access tools to help you promote, support, and further the internal audit profession visit www.theiia.org/Advocacy.

iia ForMS partnerShip to FiGht Fraud The IIA has formed an anti-fraud partnership with the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ), Financial Executives International (FEI), and National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD). The partnership was announced late last year in conjunction with the release of the CAQ report, Deterring and Detecting Financial Reporting Fraud – A Platform for Action, which recommended increased collaboration and communication among supply-chain participants to reduce financial reporting fraud risk within publicly traded companies. The report identified three elements that form the basis for reducing the risk of financial reporting fraud: n A strong, ethical tone at the top. n Skepticism, a questioning mindset that strengthens professional objectivity, by all participants in the financial reporting supply chain. n Strong communication among financial reporting supply chain participants. “Although company management and the board of directors are ultimately responsible for managing the risk of fraud, internal auditors can provide additional assurance that effective internal control processes are in place,” said Richard Chambers, The IIA’s President and CEO.

The IIA’s newly formed partnership with the CAQ, FEI, and NACD marked the beginning of a coordinated effort to deter and detect financial reporting fraud — a key component of continually enhancing investor confidence in the capital markets. Principals representing each organization formed a working group to recommend and implement concrete projects in four initial areas: n Advancing the understanding of conditions that contribute to fraud. n Developing techniques to enhance the application of skepticism. n Moderating the risks of focusing only on short-term results. n Leveraging the role of technology in deterring and detecting financial reporting fraud. Since the group’s formation, FEI and the CAQ have teamed up to offer anti-fraud panel discussion events in Chicago (May 10), Boston (May 16), Dallas (May 25), and San Francisco (June 14). The head of internal audit at Aetna, Ian Overton, will be participating on the Boston panel.

Join May 24 Webinar on Compliance Issues Maintaining open and candid communications among anti-money laundering specialists, internal auditors, and business-unit team members is crucial to the overall vitality of an organization’s compliance program. With that in mind, The IIA has teamed up with the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) to present this month’s free Members-only Webinar, Connecting the Compliance Dots: The Role of Audit, Anti-Money Laundering, and the Business Unit. “Internal auditors have a very important role in assessing and mitigating these types of risks,” says IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers. “It’s a natural fit for our three organizations to partner on providing guidance to our professional communities on this timely issue.” The 90-minute collaborative session, held May 24 at 12 p.m. EST, will feature expert speakers from the three organizations who will discuss how having a solid understanding of the roles and responsibilities of each group can lead to greater efficiency gains for the organization and reduce the risk of unwanted and unnecessary negative attention from regulators. Attendees will learn how to address emerging threats associated with the latest trends in corruption and international sanctions and discover the importance of proper communication protocol

among departments to ensure deficiencies are addressed. “The role of anti-money laundering in an institution is extremely important to detecting and combating financial crime,” says ACAMS Executive Vice President John Byrne, who will be the moderator of the event. “The performance of the anti-money laundering department is often contingent upon a close and open working relationship with the audit team and the business unit.” Other panelists include Peter Fitzgerald, principal of Forensic & Dispute Services – AML Consulting for Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP; Jack Sonnenschein, vice president of Enterprise Compliance Risk Management for American Express; and Christopher Westerman, director of IT Audit in the Americas for Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. Webinar attendees are eligible for 1.5 free continuing professional education credits. For more information about the Members-only Webinar series or to register for an event, visit www.theiia.org/MOW.

COSO to Modernize Its Framework David Landsittel, chairman of The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), recently announced that the popular five-component Internal Control–Integrated Framework will be expanded next year to include 20 application principles and related attributes. “It is generally expected that all 20 principles will, to some extent, be present and functioning for an organization to have effective internal control,” said Landsittel. Efforts to revise the nearly 20-year-old framework began several months ago, when COSO established a Project Advisory Council comprising representatives of industry, academia, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations. In January, COSO conducted a “needs” survey of approximately 700 global organizations, most of whom have been applying the internal control framework for more than five years. Landsittel said that a “large majority” of Advisory Council members and survey respondents support an update to — but not a major overhaul of — the framework. More information will be provided as the Project Advisory Council revises the framework.

Spread the Word

From the boardroom to the classroom, internal auditors are working to advocate for their beloved profession. May is International Internal Audit Awareness Month, the perfect opportunity to promote internal auditing and its important role in organizational governance, internal control, and risk management. But, what about the other 11 months of the year? “Working to elevate the profession and promote it to audit customers, executive management, boards of directors, and local communities is really an ongoing effort that demands internal auditors’ attention not just during the month of May, but throughout the year,” says Scott McCallum, manager of corporate communications and public relations for The IIA. And this cannot be done without targeted and effective advocacy — instilling pride in the internal audit profession, encouraging change, and building relationships with organizations and stakeholders that impact the profession globally. There are many ways practitioners can work together to build awareness in the workplace, throughout the community, and at local schools.

Feature story

On the Job “Start by promoting the profession in your own backyard — to your audit customers and other stakeholders in your organization,” says Margie Bastolla, director of advocacy for The IIA. One way to do this is by creating an internal audit awareness plan that identifies creative ways to spread the word that internal auditing is adding value to the organization. Members of your internal audit team can work to post reminders or inspiring messages — on break-room bulletin boards, on the organization’s intranet, in company newsletters, or even on employee pay stubs — that educate others about internal auditing’s role in ensuring the organization is running effectively and ethically. “It can help showcase auditors in a positive light, as helpful and approachable, and keep the value of their services at the forefront of their customers’ minds,” notes Bastolla. The internal audit department can sponsor a “Lunch ‘n Learn” session and invite employees from other departments to meet the internal audit team, learn about what auditors do, and ask questions. The IIA’s website offers a number of resources to help internal auditors educate their stakeholders about the purpose and value of the audit activity (visit

www.theiia.org/Advocacy). One such tool is a PowerPoint presentation template, “Your Internal Audit Team,” which practitioners can download and customize to help introduce themselves to the rest of the organization. Glenda Ostrander, director of internal audit for Gwinnett County Public Schools, says she has used the “Your Internal Audit Team” template to present to colleagues at her school district who are nonauditors. “I adapted it and personalized it with photos,” she explains. “I found it to be very beneficial in helping others to see what we’re all about.”

nizes an annual seminar that features dual tracks and exhibitor space, and offers extended three-hour lunch programs. “Due to travel time and traffic, most folks wouldn’t come for an hour lunch, but three CPE hours is much more attractive. Our chapter provides a mechanism for the audit community to find affordable training,” explains Ostrander.

Internal auditors strengthen their profession when they reach out to the broader community. The IIA’s Atlanta Chapter, for which Ostrander serves as vice president of volunteer resources, is a recognized leader in promoting the profession and serves as a model for other chapters to emulate.

Connecting with the media can also have a profound effect on the overall recognition of the internal audit profession. The Atlanta Chapter has a designated media relations volunteer who has maintained a relationship with the local Atlanta Business Chronicle over the years. “It began when the paper published an in-depth pull-out section about the chapter celebrating its 60th anniversary three years ago,” says Ostrander. Since then, the chronicle has published additional sections each year about the chapter and profiled volunteers who have a presence in the local internal audit community.

“We try to connect with local organizations whose audit shops don’t participate in The IIA by offering opportunities to earn affordable continuing professional education (CPE) hours,” she says. The chapter routinely hosts joint meetings with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and Information Systems Audit and Control Association, orga-

The Institute is hard at work developing relationships that broaden the business world’s understanding of internal auditing and The IIA. Based on its advocacy strategy – a blueprint for reaching out to and building relationships with key stakeholders – IIA Global Headquarters is advocating the profession to audit committees, international standard-setting

bodies, regulators, oversight bodies, and other professional associations. Targets include such high-level organizations as the International Federation of Accountants, the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. “These efforts are aimed at ensuring the business community at large will recognize, accept, and understand the internal audit profession,” says Bastolla, “and that like-minded standard-setting bodies, oversight entities, regulators, and other stakeholders will endorse or adopt The IIA’s Standards.”

Reaching Students “Educating new auditors for the future is the key to sustainability for the profession,” says Ostrander. To that end, her chapter is involved in many efforts to reach future practitioners, the most notable of which is its annual Student Day at the nearby Kennesaw State University (KSU). The event features a panel of speakers from Atlanta local businesses, provides a forum for students to ask questions of those working in the profession, and offers an opportunity to match students with organizations that have openings and internships. “The annual event has grown considerably over the years and now attracts students from all over the state of Georgia,” boasts Ostrander. The Atlanta Chapter also contributed US $50,000 in proceeds from the 2010 IIA International Conference it hosted to a grant to help support the Internal Audit Education Partnership (IAEP) program at KSU. The IAEP

program prepares students at institutions of higher learning with skills and knowledge they need to conduct basic internal audits immediately upon hire, as well as provides a foundation to begin preparing for the Certified Internal Auditor® exam. “It’s a way to give back to the profession,” notes Ostrander. “We’re directly touching future auditors.” Additionally, The IIA has a partnership with Junior Achievement (JA) Worldwide. The Institute encourages its members and chapters to volunteer their time and share their passion about business and ethics in classrooms through their local JA program. More than 100 IIA members in the United States dedicated 558 hours of volunteer time to JA during the 2009 – 2010 school year. IIA Chapters can receive Chapter Achievement Program points when members volunteer for their local JA program.

Embracing the Advocate Role Internal auditors around the globe agree: There is a universal lack of understanding of the internal audit profession and how it makes a difference in regard to organizational governance, risk, and internal control. However, auditors have the power to change that misconception, through both individual and organized group activities, at work and in their local community. “To ensure the internal audit activity is recognized for the value it brings to stakeholders,” McCallum says, “practitioners around the world should make it a priority to spread the word about internal auditing.”

feet. Welcoming all who visit IIA headquarters is a path of embossed bricks — bricks that have paved the way for unprecedented research for the internal audit profession and funding of The IIA global headquarters.


sPecial Feature

Along this inspiring path is a collection of bricks that bears the names of each chapter, institute, or individual who has pledged financial support to The IIA Research Foundation's (IIARF's) William G. Bishop III, CIA, Memorial Fund, which supports the global Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK) study. The CBOK study is a continuously expanding library of information about the practice of internal auditing worldwide. Created in memory of Bill Bishop, who served as president of The IIA Inc. until his untimely passing in March 2004, the fund carries on its namesake's legacy of advancing the internal audit profession. “Bill would be delighted by the evolution of the CBOK study and the contribution it has made to advance the profession,” says his widow Mary Bishop. “He would be grateful to all those who have so generously given of their time, money, and talent to bring the study to life, and he would be especially pleased that it has served to foster communication among IIA members worldwide.” Solely supported financially by The IIARF's William G. Bishop III, CIA, Memorial Fund, The IIARF's revolutionary 2010 Global Internal Audit Survey (a component of the CBOK study) represents a two-year effort to collect and analyze responses from 13,582 practitioners and others in 22 languages and more than 107 countries. It's the most comprehensive global study ever conducted on the practice of internal auditing, and its completion was marked by the release of five survey analysis reports earlier this year. (IIA members can download the reports for free from www.theiia.org/bookstore.)

It was Bishop’s passion that inspired the creation of the fund, but it is the unyielding dedication of those who share his vision for elevating internal auditing — practitioThe late William G. Bishop III, CIA ners like Simon Nyazenga who has devoted 19 years to a profession — that drove the research behind the most recent study. Nyazenga served as the 2010 CBOK Project Champion for IIA Zimbabwe, one of the more than 80 institutes that worked to promote the survey to its members. “I am deeply passionate about the profession and wanted to promote it both locally and internationally” says Nyazenga. “I also wanted to expose my local chapter to international best practices. The world crises, such as the global financial crises and the new world order, demonstrated that the profession has a great role to play in governance and risk management. I knew the study would add value in this area.” A project of this scope and global reach, led by The IIARF, necessitated the collaboration and coordination of a long list of individuals and entities. It required countless hours of dedication from a range of resources, including a primary Steering Committee comprised of approximately 20 global volunteers and a host of supportive subcommittees; staff from The IIARF, IIA global headquarters, and IIA institutes; and a carefully assembled team of researchers. Efforts to conduct a third Global Internal Audit Survey in 2015 are already underway, and The IIARF encourages individuals, organizations, chapters, and institutes to take this opportunity to support the living CBOK database by donating to the William G. Bishop III, CIA, Memorial Fund. Efforts to conduct a third Global Internal Audit Survey in 2015 are already underway.

Guidance

New Practice Guides Address Critical Topics The IIA is pleased to announce the release of two new Practice Guides that provide guidance on small audit shops and auditing the control environment. Both practice guides are part of the International Professional Practice Framework (IPPF).

of the same challenges. However, these challenges are more frequently encountered in small audit activities and typically are more difficult for small audit activities to overcome.

Visit www.theiia.org/PracticeGuides to download this important, members-only guidance today.

This Practice Guides provides guidance on the significance of the control environment; how to determine which elements of the control environment should be addressed by engagements in the periodic audit plan; how to scope, staff, and plan such engagements; and which items to consider in performing related audit work, including evaluating and reporting deficiencies.

Assisting Small Internal Audit Activities in Implementing the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing Providing a working definition of “small internal audit activity,” this Practice Guide acknowledges the challenges that a chief audit executive (CAE) and audit leadership may face in implementing the Standards. It provides recommendations for resolving those challenges and addresses the benefits of using the Standards. Many of the challenges discussed in this Practice Guide are not unique to small audit activities; larger activities may face many 14

Auditing the Control Environment

In a recent blog, “Chambers on the Profession,” IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers identified five key priorities for CAEs, one of which is coordinating and aligning with other risk, control, and compliance functions. That is the premise behind The IIA’s August 29 – 31 Governance, Risk, and Control Conference. The event will educate and engage at-

tendees on risk and other key areas of focus for internal audit activities, including leadership in ethics and governance, assessing and managing fraud risk, assessing enterprise risk management, and regulatory and sustainable compliance. Chambers is one of four general session speakers on the topic, “The New Corporate World Order: How Does Internal Audit Fit In?” Other notable speakers include The IIA’s incoming Chairman Denny Beran, Senior Vice President/Director of Audit, JCPenney Co. on, “Enhancing the Value of Internal Auditing” and Eleanor Bloxham, founder and CEO, The Value Alliance Co. and Corporate Governance Alliance on, “GRC: Elevating Internal Audit’s Seat at the Table.”

The first 170 IIA members who register for the GRC Conference before July 15 can save US $300. Visit www.theiia.org/GRC2011 for complete program details and to learn about the event’s new location in 2011.


OUR PRINCIPAL PARTNERS MAkE A DIFFERENCE The IIA acknowledges the ongoing support from our Principal Partners, who help enhance the internal audit profession by sharing their resources and knowledge with our most valuable asset – our members. These partners actively serve as members and volunteers within The IIA, participate in the introduction of new guidance, develop world-class training, and show their commitment in many other ways in an effort to advance the internal audit profession.
