Product description


This comprehensive publication serves as a complete guide to the theory and practice of internal auditing, although founded on professional audit theory, it seeks to incorporate the real life experiences of the audit practitioner. Spencer Pickett covers the conventional audit topics as well as many specialist areas such as computer audit, fraud investigations, value for money, managing change and establishing an audit function. The developing scope of the new corporate auditor's work is reflected in the diverse material that is contained in the book. New material includes: the new definition of internal audit issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), a new set of professional auditing standards, new focus on risk management, the key role of auditors in corporate governance, and more emphasis on professionalism. The new edition will also have strong international dimension with coverage of key developments in audit, governance, risk management and control in the USA, Canada, Australia,, New Zealand, UK, Europe and Asia Pacific.

From the Back Cover

The first edition of The Internal Auditing Handbook received wide acclaim from readers and became established as one of the definitive publications on internal auditing. There have been a number of significant changes in the practice of internal auditing since publication of the first edition and this thoroughly revised second edition reflects those changes. The second edition provides coverage of the new definition of internal audit issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA). It includes a new set of professional auditing standards and places a greater emphasis on professionalism. The key role of auditors in corporate governance is discussed and a new focus is provided on risk management. The second edition also examines the elevation of the status of the internal auditor from CIA to director of internal auditing and focuses on increased expectations from boards and audit committees. Attention is also given to the increasing competitive environment that exists between the large accounting firms. Another important addition involves the growing interest that is being placed in the self–audit concept.

This new edition of the Internal Auditing Handbook will prove to be an indispensable reference for both new and experienced auditors, as well as business managers, members of audit committees, control and compliance teams, and all those who may have an interest in promoting corporate governance.
