The President’s Letter

May is our annual meeting with our sister IIA Chapter in Ft. Worth.  For the last three years, we and our friends from the west side of the Metroplex have made the meeting a CPE, networking, social and team building event at the Ballpark.  This year is Ft. Worth’s turn to host the event and I am happy to announce they are continuing the new tradition of balancing training and fun at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie.  Please pay attention to the date and times:  Thursday May 12, with training from 3-5 pm, followed by dinner and horse racing!  Thanks to Protiviti for sponsoring the event.

As we enter the home stretch of the 2010-11 chapter year, we have two other events on the horizon:

  • Our final SMART conference is Advanced Operational Auditing on May 24-25 hosted by JCPenney, and
  • We are finalizing plans for the “Almost Free Seminar” on Tuesday June 21 at UTD so stay tuned for more details.  This annual event is for Dallas members only and is sponsored by Ernst & Young.

Have you seen the April 2011 edition of the award-winning Internal Auditor magazine?  Dallas IIA Governor Dennis McGuffie’s article “Taming the Beast” is featured on the cover!  Thanks Dennis for your contributions to the Chapter and the profession as you demonstrate the IIA’s motto of “progress through sharing.”

Sincerely,
Marc Winandy
2010/11 President – Dallas IIA

Session I
Economic Rebound - Huh? IA Trends and Needs to
Deliver Value in Your Organization
Scott Graham, Protiviti

Objectives: As we emerge slowly from several years of economic instability, increased regulatory oversight (e.g., the Dodd-Frank Act) and greater attention to risk management are monopolizing the time of boards and executive management.  Internal auditing professionals are also experiencing greater demands on their time and skills to help improve organizational processes while ensuring proper risk management and controls are in place.

Scott Graham will discuss the results of Protiviti’s fifth Internal Audit Capabilities and Needs Survey.  The survey is designed  to gain insight into the competencies in Audit given the growth in demand for risk management and governance-related skills and the impact on internal audit functions. Participants, including chief audit executives, internal audit directors, managers and staff, answered more than 100 questions in four categories: General Technical Knowledge, Audit Process Knowledge, Personal Skills and Capabilities, and a new category to the study, Risk Management and Governance Process Knowledge.

The purpose of this session is to:

  • Provide insight into the competencies in Audit given the growth in demand for risk management and governance-related skills and the impact on internal audit functions

Scott Graham is a founding Managing Director of Protiviti. He leads Protiviti’s Internal Audit and Financial Controls practice in our U.S. South Region – including our practices in Texas, Georgia, Florida and surrounding states. For more than 25 years, he has provided professional services to both closely held and public companies. Prior to joining Protiviti, he spent seventeen years with Arthur Andersen.

Session II
IFRS: How Should Audit Be Helping?
Russ Collins and Clint McPherson, Protiviti

Objectives:  IFRS still lingers in somewhat ambiguity as Convergence puts timeline requirements on the back burner for now.  So does that mean Audit should sit back and wait?  Hardly.  During this session, we’ll discuss ways in which IA can push the key tenets of IFRS that eventually will be coming.  Triggering the inevitable changes early that are certain to part of the ‘final’ picture will help organizations feel less of a burden when formal adoption requirements are on top of us.  Many of these same key tenets can also provide near-term benefits through adoption of standardized and more efficient business processes.

The purpose of this session is to:

  • Provide current developments/status of IFRS convergence in the US
  • Understand the impact of IFRS on a company’s infrastructure

Session III
Continuous Auditing/Monitoring – Emerging Trends and Strategies
Russ Collins and Clint McPherson, Protiviti

Objectives: The purpose of this session is for attendees to learn:

  • Methods for obtaining sponsorship of a risk management culture
  • Techniques to encourage active risk management participation
  • Challenges of implementing a culture focused on risk management

Chapter News

IIA Research Foundation

The IIA Research Foundation has issued a report available for free download to IIA members entitled Behavioral Dimensions of Internal Auditing: A Practical Guide to Professional Relationships in Internal Auditing.

Internal auditing is very much a relationship and communications business.  The authors of this research report conducted an online exploratory survey of internal auditors to explore some of the current thinking of many internal auditors on this important topic, and then examined current thinking across the academic disciplines.  This report highlights many important behavioral dimensions of internal auditors and provides insights on human relationships.

The human dimensions of internal auditing are covered in three parts:

  • The Foundations
  • Behavioral Skills
  • Behavioral Dimensions in Practice

Integrity and credibility are foundational to the concept of human dimensions of internal auditing.  Internal auditors need to have both to carry out their responsibilities and add value to their organizations in terms of reputation, effectiveness, efficiency, and compliance with laws, regulations, and procedures.  To be credible — or believable — they must be knowledgeable, trustworthy, and ethical in conduct.

This project seeks to make an important contribution to the current understanding of interpersonal relations, communications, and other general behavioral “aspects” in the internal audit profession.  It is expected to be of significant interest and relevance to practitioners, academics, and students of internal auditing.

IIA members can download the report free of charge from The IIA Web site at http://www.theiia.org/bookstore/product/behavioral-dimensions-of-internal-auditing-a-practical-guide-to-professional-relationships-in-internal-auditing-1492.cfm. For non IIA members the price is $40.

Auditors in a position in their organizations to discuss the strategy and make decisions related to operational auditing approaches

Overview: Internal auditors routinely evaluate controls and influence organizational units well beyond the financial reporting and compliance worlds. Their experience and systematic, disciplined approach to evaluating controls brings real added value to their organization.

This seminar will help you extend your audit skill set to understand advanced operational control systems that go beyond basic management tools. The operational auditing tools in the course are real-world techniques that can improve the controls in your organization.

Operational auditing is not consulting, but the skill sets of an experienced operational auditor and a consultant are much the same.

This is an advanced operational auditing course, where you are expected to already know basic auditing and control concepts. We expect everyone attending to be able to share specific operational auditing tools their organization's use. For more basic operational auditing topics, you should attend the Operational Auditing- Introduction course before attending this course.

Course Outline:
Management Methodologies
  • Use the COSO framework to evaluate an operational area.
  • Understand the various methodologies organizations use to achieve objectives such as: ISO, Balanced Scorecards, and Six Sigma.
Case Study: Entity-Level Controls
  • Begin performing an operational audit by applying a control framework at the entity level.
Operational Auditing Methodologies
  • Identify some objectives of Performance Audits and steps used.
  • Identify the steps required using the Value Cost Improvement (VCI) tool and practice using these methodologies in an operational audit.
  • Recognize how a Control Self-Assessment (CSA) is used in an operational auditing tool.
  • Recognize how the “Six Questions” approach is used during an operational auditing tool.
  • Identify the steps used in Business Process Analysis.
Enhancing Audit Efficiencies and Effectiveness
  • Identify how technology, experts and consultants, and continuous auditing can improve audit effectiveness.
  • Recognize how Computer Assisted Audit Techniques (CAATs) are used in an operational audit.
Operational Auditing ROI
  • Identify leading practices and findings from external quality assessment reviews.
  • Understand internal audits responsibilities in detecting and investigating fraud.
  • Identify the elements that must be communicated in the final report and how to link components of internal control.
