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.
 
With permission from the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the ACUIA has developed QAR process checklists to assist credit union internal audit departments in complying with these Standards.
 
Log into the Members Only section of the website to access the QAR resources.
 

The Interactive Audit Guide

The ACUIA Interactive Audit Guide includes administrative procedures and internal audit programs created by your credit union peers. The audit programs include audit steps/procedures and questionnaires and 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.
