Auditing the Public SectorAuditors in the public sector face a unique set of challenges, given that they must satisfy both their internal stakeholders — chief executives, boards, divisional service heads — and also be accountable to both politicians and the public. This report aims to assess how well they are coping with that mandate and how they might improve their practices in the future.

Despite their challenges, many public sector auditors are getting involved in their organization’s strategic business risks, using The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) nearly as much as those outside the public sector.

To help practitioners understand and respond to challenges, this report provides insights from thought leadership in the industry and findings from the 2015 CBOK Practitioner Survey, the largest survey of internal auditors in the world.
