Mission statement

To improve IEEE’s operations through independent, objective assurance and consulting activities; Internal Audit supports the IEEE Mission and Aspirations by evaluating and improving the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes using a systematic and disciplined approach.

Selection of auditors

When an audit is required, the IEEE Internal Audit Department will perform an audit of the financial reports and records for the given entity (i.e., IEEE Sponsored Conferences, IEEE Geographical units, or Standards Working Groups).  The audited entity is also free to select the auditor of their choice, provided that they are an independent, professional outside source (with Internal Audit's concurrence).

How the audit fee is calculated

Internal Audit's fee is based on the greater of either actual revenue or expenses multiplied by .006. For example, the audit fee for a conference with revenue of US$250,000 and expenses of US$190,000 would be calculated as follows: US$250,000 x .006 = US$1,500. The maximum audit fee charged for an audit is US$6,000.
