Audit Plan

Definition

The audit plan consists of all ller audits planned for a particular period of time. For example, all audits that are to be executed in the space of one year are defined in an annual audit plan. There is always only one current version of an audit plan, where all date shifts and the degree of completion for the individual audits can be found.

Use

The audit plan is the planning instrument for the administration of audits. It can, for example, be created as an audit plan for one year, for three years, or for 18 months.

Structure

The audit plan is structured hierarchically. This means that other audit plans, as well as the audits themselves, can be assigned to an audit plan. Note that an audit is the lowest level of the hierarchy. This means that no additional audits or audit plans can be assigned to an audit.
