Competency Framework

The IIA Global Internal Audit Competency Framework (the Framework) is a tool that defines the competencies needed to meet the requirements of the International Professional Practices Framework® (IPPF®) for success within the internal audit profession.

A competency is the ability of an individual to perform a job or task properly, being a set of defined knowledge, skills, and behaviors. The Framework provides a structured guide, enabling the identification, evaluation, and development of those competencies in individual internal auditors.

The Framework outlines the 10 core competencies to be demonstrated by each role including: Internal Audit Staff, Internal Audit Senior/Supervisor, Internal Audit Manager, Senior Manager, Director, and Head of Internal Audit/Chief Audit Executive. Each core competency is supported by a list of more detailed competencies that further define the core competency statement.

While the core competencies have been defined individually, it should be understood that there are connections and interdependencies between all of the competencies. 

The completed framework underpins the suite of learning programs offered by IIA-Australia.
