IIA Launches Essential Resource for Audit Leaders

Enhanced Audit Executive Center Provides Direct Access to Critical Tools, Other Resources

LAKE MARY, Fla., 26 June 2017 – The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) today launched a new Audit Executive Center (AEC) and website that provides internal audit leaders with direct access to relevant and timely information, resources, and services specifically designed to address today’s unique challenges, emerging risks, and other demands on the internal audit profession.

In addition to an array of exclusive content, solutions, videos, and other guidance geared to chief audit executives (CAEs), senior management and staff, the AEC now features the “Audit Intelligence Suite,” with benchmarking reports to gauge audit function performance, skills assessments to evaluate team members’ proficiency, and surveys to obtain stakeholder feedback.

Additionally, a Small Audit Function Resource Exchange was developed for those with limited resources but whose needs and risks are neither fewer nor less critical.

“The mission of the new AEC is to be the go-to resource for CAEs at any size function, enabling them to be more connected and relevant in all they do,” said IIA President and CEO Richard F. Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA. “With its rich content and enhanced, easy-to-navigate website, this site will quickly become invaluable to audit leaders.”

Though delivery of the information has taken on new depth and an exciting new look, the goal of the AEC remains: to be an essential resource for CAEs by providing customized solutions for today’s leaders, and empowering them to be more successful and relevant in their ever-changing business environment.

“One of the greatest assets of the AEC is the CAE networking experience,” said AEC Director Christopher Polke, CGAP. “Our CAEs share knowledge and interact with each other frequently through peer requests, pre-conference forums, roundtables, and other events. The new AEC complements this idea-sharing strategy and provides even more enhanced resources and business solutions to help CAEs in their demanding, evolving roles.”

Three membership levels provide solutions based on CAE, staff, and stakeholder needs.
