3.2 Public Sector & Economic Recovery: The Role of Internal Audit Post Pandemic
The presentation is specifically targeted at public sector entities, recognizing that economic recovery strategies will largely be delivered via government programs. Organizational preparedness through economic scenario planning, funding scenario planning, and mandate delivery model evaluations will be tools used in evaluating potential tactics.
This discussion will focus on internal audit’s role in providing assurance to stakeholders throughout this process. From assurance on the impacts of management’s plans for changes including assessing scenario planning, to transformational assurance during organizational change, to the assessment of benefits realization. We will explore how internal audit can provide real-time assurance that the organization is positioned for objectives achievement, while supporting economic recovery initiatives in a changed world.
