What Are the Types of Audit Evidence?

If your organization is required to follow one or more compliance frameworks, an external third party may demand an audit to verify that your company has actually met those compliance standards. When an organization is undergoing an audit, it must provide audit evidence, such as financial statements, internal documents, logs, and emails. The auditor uses that evidence to reach a conclusion about whether or not the client organization has achieved compliance.

What is an Audit Universe?

An audit universe is a document that details all the audit activities to be carried out by the internal audit function. It consists of multiple and distinct auditable entities, processes, and activities, which can be considered “auditable units.” The number of these auditable units varies depending on the organization’s size, business complexity, and operational scale. In some cases they can run into the hundreds or even thousands.
