Internal Audit, Evaluation and Review - Performance Results

Internal Audit, Evaluation and Review (IAER) publishes the performance results of its Internal Audit (IA) function, as required by the Directive on Internal Audit. This helps ensure that that the public is aware that heads of government organizations are receiving assurance and that activities are managed in a way that demonstrates responsible stewardship. The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat's website provides additional information on why we publish key compliance attributes for internal audit.

To ensure consistency between its audit and evaluation functions, IAER also proactively publishes the performance results of its evaluation function against the same Key Compliance Attributes identified for internal audit.
