9 Records and Follow-up

  9.1 Records from all audits conducted should be maintained by the Secretary-General. Such records should include:

  • .1 Member State audit interim and final reports;

  • .2 Member State audit summary reports; and

  • .3 audit team leaders' mission reports.

  9.2 An audit follow-up should, if applicable, be conducted between one and two years following a Member State audit, in order to determine the status of implementation of the corrective action plan.

  9.3 The standard auditing procedures applied to the audit follow-up are the same as for the regular Member State audit described in this document. The only exception is the difference in scope, as the audit follow-up should be limited to issues identified during the initial audit as being in need of improvement or further monitoring.

  9.4 The audit follow-up team will normally consist of an audit team leader and other members as required depending on the scope of the audit. Where possible, at least one of the audit team members for an audit follow-up should have been a member of the original audit team.
