Quality Assessment Manual for the Internal Audit Activity (QA Manual)
The IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), The Standards, requires all Internal Audit activities regardless of industry, sector, or size of staff, to develop and maintain a Quality Assurance and Improvement Program (QAIP). The essential elements of a QAIP include internal and external assessments.

Streamlined Methodology for performing quality assessments!
Revised by leading quality assessment methodology experts, along with an international team of reviewers, this updated Quality Assessment Manual broadens the focus to include all components of a QAIP: internal assessments (ongoing and periodic), metrics, continuous improvement and reporting, as well as external assessments. Aligned with the Standards, the Manual:
- Outlines a quality assessment process flow that streamlines gathering of evidence and eliminates duplication of work
- Contains standardized guides that promote ease of use while achieving consistency in assessment techniques and documentation of results
- Provides a Road Map that highlights the alignment of the specific assessment activities with the mandatory guidance of the IPPF.
The Quality Assessment Manual is a must-have reference for every Internal Audit activity and Chief Audit Executive’s resource library.
