Shaping your ACCA – Internal Audit focus groups 2018
ACCA’s extensive outreach programme has seen views received from over 170 ACCA members in 13 different locations across the UK. These focus groups covered members in public practice, the corporate sector, financial services, internal audit, health and the public sector.
The purpose of these focus groups is to identify the challenges our members face in internal audit and the support that ACCA might be able to provide them as they meet these challenges. These meetings play an important role in helping to shape ACCA strategy, products and services and ACCA is grateful to the members who attend these groups to provide feedback.
Three focus groups were held with members working in Internal Audit - in London, Birmingham and Manchester. Discussion areas included data analytics, data access, IT audits, the blurring of lines between risk management and internal audit, top audits for the year, key challenges as an internal auditor right now, how ACCA can help, and the development of the internal audit profession.
