Internal Audit Foundation Premier Research Study 2021

As you are aware, in a collaborative effort to clearly understand the needs and expectations of our members worldwide, we have requested your support of our Premier Global Research Study: Assessing Internal Audit Practices.

This study will help us better understand internal audit practices worldwide and the current relevance  of the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) and the Standards to those practices. Your input, and that of your local members, is crucial to determining the need and scope of any potential updates.

The English version of the survey opened today and will remain open through 31 August. We will be adding Chinese Simplified, French, Japanese, and Spanish translations of the survey in the coming days.

To support you in your outreach efforts, we have created a marketing toolkit, including web, email, and social media copy, as well as several varied sizes of web banner ads, for your use. The marketing assets can be found here.

If you have any questions regarding these or other research initiatives, please contact us at On behalf of The IIA and the Internal Audit Foundation, we thank you for your efforts in furthering the internal audit profession through important research.
