This sample audit program provides general steps organizations can use when performing an information technology asset management (ITAM) audit.
Questions to consider during this process include: Have the goals of asset management been formally developed and communicated to all members of the team? Are the goals aligned with the strategy and goals of the IT organization? Are the goals periodically evaluated and published? Who is responsible for the ownership of the goals? How are goals measured? Does an asset manager exist? What are the responsibilities of the asset manager? Who does the asset manager report to within the organization?
