The chief audit executive (CAE) should consider an integrated audit approach as part of the overall methodology used by the internal audit activity. The objective is to achieve a more effective and efficient audit engagement. Current IPPF guidance provides a solid foundation for this approach. This guide, Integrated Auditing, discusses areas that enhance the audit engagement by providing guidance on areas that may differ between a prior traditional and current integrated audit approach.
