This questionnaire allows members of the audit committee to review, critique, and evaluate the internal audit function on an annual/periodic basis. Using the questionnaire, the audit committee can assess, on a scale of one to five, the ability and responsiveness of the internal audit team. This feedback will then help internal audit to continually improve their service to the audit committee. It sends a message that the department is striving to meet the needs of the audit committee and to increase its value to the organization.
This questionnaire can be used as a sample to help the internal audit team create their own customized questionnaire for the audit committee. Once the appropriate questions are ready, the questionnaire should be disseminated to the audit committee on an annual/periodic basis. The survey includes space for audit committee members to make comments and suggestions for improvement.
