Developing Tomorrow's Internal Auditor
Urton Anderson, University of Texas
A recent survey from Robert Half reported that “the demand for
internal auditors today is unprecedented.” They report that it
typically takes more than 12 weeks to hire staff internal auditors
and up to six months for hiring at the management level. And this is
not just internal audit in another survey of managers over half
reported having difficulty finding skilled job candidates to fill
accounting and finance positions. Where will tomorrow’s internal
auditors come from? What skills will they need? Professor Anderson
will talk about what being done and what needs to be done in college
and university accounting curriculum to train the internal auditor
of the future.

The IIA Research Foundation (IIARF) is proud to present results
of the Common Body of Knowledge 2006 (CBOK) study to all members of
The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) as a free download from The

- Emerging roles.
The IIARF is committed to understanding, guiding, and shaping the

commitment by participating in the CBOK study and sharing their
input and wisdom. The results of CBOK belong to the internal audit
profession, and The IIARF is pleased to provide to IIA members these
results in electronic format. In addition, a 472-page bound copy of

The IIA issued three additional Global Technology Audit Guides
(GTAG). These include:
GTAG 7: IT Outsourcing – This guide provides
information on the types of IT outsourcing activities, the IT
outsourcing lifecycle, and how outsourcing activities should be
managed. Key issues covered in this guide include:
- How to choose the right IT outsourcing vendor?
- What are the best ways to manage outsourcing contract
- What are the main outsourcing risks and how to mitigate
- What are the key outsourcing control considerations from
the perspective of both client operations and service
- Which is the most effective framework for establishing
GTAG 8: Auditing Application Controls - Effective
application controls will help your organization to ensure the
integrity, accuracy, confidentiality and completeness of your
data and systems. It is important to develop and execute audits
of application controls on a periodic basis in order to
determine whether they are designed appropriately and operating
effectively. This guide provides internal auditors with the
- What are application controls?
- What is the relationship between application controls
and general controls?
- Why rely on application controls?
- How to scope a risk-based application control review?
- What are the steps to conduct an application controls
GTAG 9: Identity and Access Management - Identity and
access management (IAM) is a cross-functional process that helps
organizations manage who has access to what information. This
process is used to initiate, capture, record, and manage the
user identities and related access permissions to the
organization's proprietary information.
Internal auditors should be involved in the development of
the organization's IAM strategy as well as in the evaluation of
the implementation of the strategy and effectiveness of
companywide access controls. The purpose of this guide is to
provide insight into what IAM means to an organization and to
suggest internal audit areas for review. It can assist the
internal auditor to understand, analyze, and monitor their
organization's IAM processes. A checklist for an IAM review is
also included in this guide.

The next Dallas Chapter review courses, featuring live training
by Dr. Glen Sumners of Louisiana State University, will be offered
as follows at UT Dallas:
- February 15-18, 2008
- September 4-7, 2008 (note the date change)
We are now registering for the February 2008 course. For registration information, please see
http://www.dallasiia.org/CIA_Review_S08.htm. Note that registration deadline is January 31, 2008. The course will be cancelled if we have insufficient registrations by February 1, 2008.
Computer-based Testing – Change in Date
The computer-based testing (CBT) for The IIA’s certification
programs is being postponed until May 2008 and other program
enhancements, including the elimination of the testing windows in
favor of year-round testing, will be implemented with the May
launch. Announcement from the IIA:
The IIA is pleased to announce a significant enhancement
to its certification program. Beginning in May 2008,
certification testing will be available on a year-round basis
through the new computer-based testing (CBT) process. Originally
scheduled for roll-out in February with pre-determined testing
windows, CBT will now go live in May, with no testing-window
constraints. This means that certification candidates will be
able to take full advantage of computer-based testing anytime
throughout the year in multiple languages.
To further enhance the CBT process, The IIA has contracted
with an industry-leading software vendor to deliver a
high-quality registration and application process, resulting in
a more complete launch. “By slightly delaying CBT roll-out,”
says IIA Vice President Professional Practices Susan Lione, CIA,
CCSA, CGAP, CFSA, “we will be able to offer long-term benefits
that far exceed previous expectations!”
Please check The IIA’s Web site in March for program
details and information on the registration process.
Registration will begin in April. (The registration process and
timing may differ in countries in which the local IIA institute
manages the registration process. Candidates should refer to The
IIA’s Web site for a list of these countries, along with contact
information). Upon registering, a candidate will have six months
to sit for the exam. Candidates who do not pass an exam part
must wait 90 days before being allowed to retest. Upon its
availability, more information will be posted to The IIA’s Web
site at www.theiia.org/certification.

Internal Audit Advocacy! .... Get
This semester at UTD brings many exciting events for the IAEP
program. Our annual Fraud seminar that supports the program is
planned for March 28 and is expected to be bigger and better than
before. Make sure you sign up in advance as it is planned to sell
out this year. Also, the IIA meeting will be held on February 7 and
the academic relations committee is encouraging all students to
attend. This is a great opportunity for students to meet other
students from different schools participating in the program. We are
encouraging our students to attend this event so they may network
with individuals in the internal audit profession. We would like
each of you to make the students feel welcome, and we encourage you
to meet a minimum of three students while at the luncheon. In
addition the guest speaker from UT Austin, Dr. Urton Anderson, has a
lot of insight working with students in running the Accounting
Department and Internal Audit program at UT Austin.
This semester in our Internal Audit class, our students have the
opportunity to have hands on experience with internal audit by
completing an in depth student project internship. This semester's
internships included placements at the City of Garland, UT
Southwestern Medical Center, UT Dallas, AT&T and the City of Plano.
We are also beginning our second semester offering the Advanced
Audit class and we are planning on building on the success we
enjoyed last semester. This class is taught at Audit Senior and
Manager-level and covers topics such as: QAR, ERM, Control Self
Assessment, auditing vendor relationships, working with adversarial
audit clients, and marketing the audit function within an
organization. This class is purely discussion based and much of the
success from last semester is owed to the outstanding organizations
that provided practitioners to participate in the class discussions.
I would like to extend thanks to Southwest Airlines, BNSF,
Countrywide, DART, DISD, PISD, and Raytheon for their support.
Our biggest issue is still advocacy of the profession and
educating students of the possible careers in internal audit. All of
you can help with this issue by talking to as many students
throughout the year and educating them on the perspective careers
that start in internal audit.
As I mentioned in the fall newsletter we hope to grow the Student
Chapter to over 200 students by May 2008. All of you have an
opportunity to help in this effort. We have in place a number of
methods to have employers meet students and explain the benefits of
careers in internal audit. So the good news is there are avenues to
recruit students, but you must get them early. A new batch of
students get involved every semester so reviewing the status of who
is available every February and September is a great idea.
To schedule a reception, site visit, interview or peruse resumes,
contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or
The Student Chapter will have resume posted after February 8 and
interviews start mid-February. The Student Chapter Website is
