Audits objectively review and assess how well management practices and controls are performing. Audits determine the effectiveness and efficiency of these practices and controls and then make recommendations.
At the request of program managers, DFATD regularly performs audits of its international development programs to help ensure effective and efficient use of its resources. The Internal Audit Division conducts these audits either as part of it's Internal Audit Plan or on special request.
The Audit and Evaluation Committee reviews the status of the audit recommendations on an ongoing basis.
