The IIA Research Foundation has recently issued a monograph entitled Research Opportunities in Internal Auditing (ROIA). This monograph was commissioned because of the increased role that internal audit would play as part of the solutions to corporate scandals (e.g., Enron) and the perceived breakdown in the systems of business reporting, internal control, and ethical behavior. The ROIA monograph both intended to serve as an inspiration for sound academic research on topics of interest and importance to internal auditing and to act as a communication bridge between academics and practitioners. To understand the ramifications of, and opportunities from, the new corporate governance environment, ten well-known and respected academics have written on the past, present, and future of internal auditing. The monograph contains the following eight subjects/chapters:
At the end of each chapter are potential research questions. The Research Foundation hopes that this monograph will foster research on important issues to the public and the internal auditing community and intends to fund future research based on projects inspired by this monograph. It is available for downloading from the IIA website at www.theiia.org/ecm/iiarf.cfm?doc_id=3993.
