The Dallas Chapter - November 2006 eNews

November 2006

The President’s Letter

The Dallas Chapter had the opportunity to hold the October meeting at the Brookhaven Country Club. I received positive feedback on the location and the service. The Programs Committee also identified a few things that could be managed better for future meetings (e.g., pre- and post-meetings should be held in a separate room from the lunch meeting). We plan to work with the Brookhaven Country Club to address these minor changes so that our March 2007 meeting will run more smoothly.

We will return to Cityplace for the November meeting - our annual joint meeting with the Dallas Chapter of the Association of Government Auditors (AGA). This is our third consecutive year to meet with AGA and I look forward to this networking event. This month our theme is "Corporate Governance." Standard 2130 of The IIA's International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing states that internal audit should assess and make appropriate recommendations for improving the governance process. Refer to the IIA Web site for more details: http://www.theiia.org/index.cfm?act=content.page&doc_id=4299&Site=iia. Your organization's annual internal audit plan should address this standard in some way. This is not to say that every audit should include an assessment of the governance process but you should consider the relevance of this standard to your audits.

I look forward to another successful meeting. If you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or another officer.

Sincerely,

Pamela Krakosky
2006-2007 President - Dallas Chapter IIA

Migration of SOX from Project to Process

Jim DeLoach, Protiviti Inc.

There are significant opportunities to improve the sustainability of internal control structures within organizations and increase the cost-effectiveness of the compliance process after filing your initial internal control reports required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“SOX”). To manage your transition from “project to process,” companies need an ongoing infrastructure that leverages learning, institutionalizes compliance, meets audit committee expectations and mines the data for “value-added” opportunities and migration to a faster, more efficient close process.

The “project to process” transition requires a structured approach that will help companies evaluate their options for designing the organizational structure that facilitates ongoing compliance. In this session, Jim will discuss various trends occurring in the marketplace around this area and also provides a suggested approach to this difficult transition where internal audit teams can be “front and center” in helping lead their organizations through this change process.

Jim DeLoach, Protiviti Managing Director, is Protiviti’s leader in developing the firm’s market offerings in the governance services space (including SOX compliance) and in enterprise-wide risk management. He chairs Protiviti’s SOX PMO Task Force, which provides oversight to the quality, consistency and growth of the firm’s initiatives to serve clients and go-to-market with respect to SOX offerings. He is co-author of Managing business risk: An integrated approach, published by The Economist Intelligence Unit in 1995, and of numerous articles covering various aspects of business risk assessment and management.

Jim’s book, Enterprise-wide Risk Management: Strategies for linking risk and opportunity, was published by Financial Times in June 2000 and was the first book written on the subject of enterprise risk management. For three years, he served on the COSO Advisory Board that provided advice and guidance to the development of the new Enterprise Risk Management –Integrated Framework issued by COSO in 2004. He is frequently quoted in the press on governance and risk management matters and has delivered numerous presentations on governance and risk management topics to many companies and groups in 26 countries on every inhabitable continent.

Jim also writes The Bulletin, Protiviti’s publication on governance-related issues, and more recently wrote Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Sarbanes-Oxley Act Executive Certification Requirements and all three editions of Guide to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act: Internal Control Reporting Requirements. He recently wrote Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Enterprise Risk Management, which was published in February 2006.

Dennis R. Jennings, Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)

With a background of corporate failures, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was passed giving rise to the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

He has provided general consulting, accounting and auditing services on an international basis since 1970 to numerous multinational companies in various industries.

Dennis has held numerous leadership roles with such organizations as the Chicago Climate Exchange; North American Petroleum Accounting Conference; Independent Petroleum Association of America; American Petroleum Institute; and the American Institute and Louisiana Society of Certified Public Accountants. He also chaired the Offender Preparation and Education Network, Texas Tech and Tulane University Accounting Advisory Councils and several New Orleans Chamber of Commerce committees while serving as a member of the Chamber’s board of directors.

Post-Meeting 1:30pm

The Role of Internal Auditing in Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Reporting
2006 Esther R. Sawyer Winner Tiffany Daykin

Tiffany Daykin has a Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and is currently in the MBA program at UT Dallas, graduating in spring 2007. Tiffany has worked as a software consultant for six years with five years experience focused in the oil and gas (accounting) industry. She left software development to become an engineering consultant for a company called Nexidea. Currently, she is working as an associate at Nexidea and participating and consulting in projects for international refineries.

The Esther R. Sawyer Scholarship Award is granted annually to an individual entering or currently enrolled in a graduate program in internal auditing at an Internal Auditing Educational Partner school, based on submission of an original manuscript. The award honors Esther Sawyer, who was not an internal auditor, but was an avid proponent of internal audit curricula in colleges and universities and promoted internal auditing as a lifetime career.

2006 Award Topic:

Social responsibility reporting by publicly traded companies has become an expected part of doing business on a global scale. The IIA's Standard 2130 on Governance states that internal auditing "should contribute to the organization's governance process by evaluating and improving the process through which:

  1. Values and goals are established and communicated
  2. The accomplishment of goals is monitored
  3. Accountability is ensured
  4. Values are preserved.”

What is the role of internal auditing in sustainable development and corporate social reporting?

Chapter News

IIA Research Foundation

The Research Foundation has thus far in 2006 issued two additional Global Technology Audit Guides (GTAG). These include:
 

  • Global Technology Audit Guide 5: Managing and Auditing Privacy Risks - One of the many challenging and formidable risk management issues faced by organizations today is protecting the privacy of customers and employees personal information. This GTAG covers privacy concepts, principles, and frameworks. GTAG 5 will aid Chief Audit Executives, internal auditors, and management to find the right sources as guidance for their organizations. It provides the insight into privacy risks that the organization should address when it collects, uses, retains, or discloses personal information. This GTAG elaborates on how to deal with privacy within the audit process and also provide a generic outline for a privacy audit program.
  • Global Technology Audit Guide 6: Managing and Auditing IT Vulnerabilities - This guide was developed to help chief audit executives (CAEs) and internal auditors ask the right questions of IT security staff when assessing the effectiveness of their vulnerability management processes. Throughout the vulnerability management process, the role of internal auditors is to assess the effectiveness of preventive, detective, and mitigation measures against past and future attacks. In addition, auditors need to inform the board of directors of the threats, vulnerabilities, and corrective measures taken to fix problem areas. In particular, auditors identify where IT security can implement more effective vulnerability management processes and better validate existing vulnerability remediation efforts.

Both of these reports are in paperback form and can be ordered online at – www.theiia.org/index.cfm?act=form.bookstore, or calling toll free 1-877-867-4957. (Order number 1012 for Guide number 4 and order number 1017 for Guide number 5, IIA member price - $25, non member price - $30 for each publication.)

CARRYING ON A LEGACY – THE COMMON BODY OF KNOWLEDGE 2006

The Institute of Internal Auditors Research Foundation (IIARF) is committed to understanding how the practice of internal auditing is carried out around the world and using this knowledge to provide guidance to our more than 115,000 members. Today, this effort is taking a monumental step forward.

The IIARF is performing an ongoing research program, entitled the Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK), which will broaden our understanding of how internal auditing is practiced around the world. This comprehensive study will be updated every three years and will become a permanent program of The IIA Research Foundation.

What is the Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK)?

  • The most important research study the IIARF has ever undertaken
     
  • The first project funded by the William Bishop III, CIA Memorial Fund
    • We envision this project to be a living legacy of Bill’s passion for internal auditing
    • Bill was a tremendous supporter of internal audit research and CBOK will provide a fitting tribute to Bill’s contributions to the profession of internal auditing
       
  • A comprehensive survey that will capture the state of the internal auditing profession throughout the world including: • The knowledge and skills that internal auditors possess
    • The varying skill and organizational levels that practice internal auditing work
    • The actual duties performed by internal auditors
    • The structure of internal audit organizations
    • The types of industries which practice internal audit
    • The regulatory environment of various countries
       
  • CBOK will provide an understanding of the unique value-added role internal auditing has in organizations throughout the world
    • This understanding will enable us to better define the future of internal auditing and ensure that it remains a vibrant and relevant contribution to organizations
       
  • The results of CBOK will drive many crucial aspects of The IIA for the next 3 years, including:
    • Certifications and exams
    • Standards
    • Advocacy
    • Practice Advisories
    • Educational Programs
    • Educational Products
    • Publications
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
  • Visit the CBOK web site at www.theiia.org/CBOK and sign up to take the survey
  • Encourage your co-workers and staff to take the survey when it is released
  • Promote the survey within your organization, IIA chapter or affiliate and other professional groups

We anticipate the release of the survey in the third quarter of 2006. To learn more about CBOK, view project phases, sign up to participate in the survey or keep up to date on the project’s status, visit www.theiia.org/CBOK.
