What does scope mean?
The scope of an audit refers to the breadth of the review (how many processes / functions are included). Most audits include an initial planning phase in which the area’s control environment is reviewed at a high level. Areas that appear to have weak controls are selected for audit testing (i.e., included in the audit scope). For more information, please call 602-506-1585.
