Their work, published in the February issue of Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, examines the impact of the internal audit function on timely reporting by developing a proxy for the internal audit function to measure the quality and volume of an organization's internal auditing contributions.

Their model of internal audit function. – This paper aims to investigate the relative importance of audit-team and audit-firm attributes in perceptions of audit quality by two groups of users of audit services: audit committee chairs/members (“insiders”) and financial analysts/fund managers (“outsiders”)., – Using a survey questionnaire, data are gathered from 39 audit committee chairs/members and 42 financial analysts Cited by: 7.

The survey confirmed that internal audit input is valued by management across organisations. The finance director, the company secretary, the chief risk officer people are queuing up to pass challenging projects on to internal audit.

As a response, the Institute of Internal Auditors has designed a new definition of internal auditing. Senior management wants internal audit to compensate for the loss of control they experience resulting from increased organisational complexity.

Senior management expects internal audit to fulfil a supporting role in the monitoring and improvement of risk management and internal control, and wants them to monitor the corporate culture.
