  • Franklin King Liberia integrity of the information produced. In this area a continual monitoring process should be in place to ensure that the system is producing accurate information. In systems where there are no mandatory audits required, often the company will create checks of its own to ensure the accuracy of information being produced. A common example of this would be a stock take where the stock levels on the shelves are compared with the information contained within the system to ensure accuracy. These audits of the system will be built into the standard operating procedures of the company.

  • Eric Simbandumwe Rwanda So monitoring system should be in place to ensure that the results produced by system are accurate in all ways. However in systems that don't require mandatory monitoring, a company can create its own checks to ensure accuracy of results being produced. This can be done through stock taking, with stock levels on the shelves are compared with those on the system to ensure accuracy. These audits can then be built into the standard operating procedures of the company for good monitoring and audits.

  • chris kollie Other When a new system is implemented it is good to have it audited to measure/evaluate whether it is better then than the old system. This audit is necessary whether or not it is mandatory. The organization must be able to tell if the new system meets its standard, has solved the problem and is performing satisfactorily. Also, in addition to its internal auditors, the organization could use external auditors and other users of the new system to evaluate it. This is necessary to eliminate bias as information gathered come from people who knew the old system and its problem and might now be using the new system.

  • Samuel Kofi Odoi Ghana Internal auditors play a valuable role in ensuring that IT investments are well-managed and have a positive impact on an organization. Their assurance role supports senior management, the audit committee, the board of directors, and other stakeholders. Internal auditors need to take a risk-based approach in planning their many activities on IT project audits. With limited audit resources, auditors must focus on the highest-risk project areas, while adding value to the organization. Audit best practices suggest internal auditors should be involved throughout a project's life cycle — not just in post-implementation assessments. Converting from old to new computer systems is an important, but often underestimated, aspect of IT projects. Implementing a new system usually requires a variety of system changes, production data conversion and migration, and new operational policies and procedures. Each of these areas poses significant risk to the organization during the actual system conversion. Consequently, conversion audit efforts typically focus on reviewing plans and results for: The overall implementation of the IT solution. The systems that are required to implement the IT solution. The operational changes required within the organization as part of the implementation. When planning system conversion audits, auditors need a good understanding of the business requirements for the system, the project's risks, and how the proposed system will work. To understand the solution, they must identify the various operational and system changes that will be implemented. Also, because project information usually becomes available over time, some audit planning will have to be completed on an iterative basis.
