7 Practices for Better Audit Outcomes

An article by Jim H. Crumpacker - Homeland Security

When it comes to ensuring successful audit outcomes, the two parties involved — the auditors and the auditees — must be committed to active cooperation. Throughout my career, I have followed certain principles that, when consistently adhered to by both parties, have resulted in successful audits.

I have worked in the U.S. Air Force Audit Agency and in the Office of Inspectors General (OIGs) of both the U.S. Postal Service and Department of Transportation. Since 2010, I have served as the director of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) OIG Liaison Office for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In my current position, I facilitate nearly 250 GAO and various OIG performance audits at one any time across DHS.

These seven principles, along with approaches DHS uses to implement them, can easily be used by other organizations seeking to improve their audit outcomes.
