Step Audit Report

After performing the audit of the ITSC, the IS auditor is to prepare an audit report detailing his or her findings and audit recommendations. The IS auditor has to be aware of the organizational "politics" when preparing the draft findings and recommendations. In particular, the ITSC chairperson may have significant "political" power within the organization.

Therefore, from the outset, the IS auditor must "sell" the contents of the audit report and ensure that all findings and recommendations are discussed with all the stakeholders. The findings must be supported by documentary evidence (where appropriate) to ensure acceptance of the recommendations by the ITSC and executive management. Any errors of fact will detract from the objective of providing executive management with a detailed analysis of the effectiveness of the ITSC.

The audit report must provide sufficient detail to allow management to take specific action to address the issues found during the audit.
