The Institute of Internal Auditor's (IAA) defines internal auditing as "an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes."
For Buncombe County, internal auditing is the ongoing process of evaluating county departments, programs, processes, and records to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, accuracy of data, efficient and effective uses of resources and adequate security over county assets and records.
