Forward-looking strategic assurance, driven by technology
At PwC, we are driving Internal Audit innovation merging the skills of our people with a robust, leading edge Internal Audit approach and state-of-the-art technology. The result is The PwC Internal Audit. Relevant, aligned and agile, it delivers insight and quality in equal measure and to the highest standard, helping you build the confidence to move faster and act decisively.
Co-sourcing is an essential part of what makes many Internal Audit functions successful, providing access to a wide variety of skills, subject matter expertise and specialist insights. These are increasingly necessary to provide your stakeholders with assurance over the risks that matter yet many in-house teams find it challenging to acquire them. Co-sourcing can also support you in developing your staff’s potential providing important skills and experience few in-house functions can maintain alone.
An outsourced team, aligned to your strategy, relevant to the issues you’re facing and armed with innovative techniques and technology, is capable of providing the insights, expertise and assurance you need to deliver against your objectives and meet the boards expectations. If you have an existing Internal Audit function it will, almost certainly have evolved over time but so too, has Internal Audit outsourcing. It’s time to reconsider whether specialist resources can give you the agility necessary to manage change and exploit the opportunities it presents.
Every successful business is supported by an effective and valued Internal Audit function. An Advisory team provides the impartial perspective of a third party which can be invaluable in helping you establish what good Internal Audit looks like for your organisation. A broad overview of the profession and market place and deep subject matter and industry experience can help shape your vision and the steps you need to take to create or enhance your Internal Audit function.
