The following are just some of the programs and services offered by ACUIA.

The Audit Guide

ACUIA offers an audit guide that includes a set of administrative procedures and internal audit programs. The audit programs include audit steps/procedures and questionnaires. The audit programs cover topics common to many credit unions. If you are a new auditor just getting started, this is a great way to begin that audit plan. For more seasoned auditors, the audit programs are a great supplement to your own audits. The Audit Guide is avalable in its entirety in the Audit Guide Page.

Quality Assurance Review (QAR)

Quality Assurance Review (QAR)

  According to Standard 1300 of the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing, a chief audit executive (CAE) should develop and maintain a quality assurance and improvement program that covers all aspects of the internal audit activity and continuously monitor its effectiveness. The ACUIA has developed some tools to assist credit union internal audit departments in complying with these Standards.
To view details, visit the QAR info page.
