Compiled by subject matter experts and volunteers, The IIA's Competency Framework outlines the minimum level of knowledge and skills needed to effectively operating and maintain an internal audit function. The first edition in 2008 has now been updated. The Framework outlines the 10 core competencies recommended for each broad job level, namely internal audit staff, internal audit management, and the 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 among all of the competencies.
