The primary aim of our advocacy program is to raise the profile of the internal audit profession in Australia, communicate the benefits of accreditation and membership, and promote the standards for the profession and practice of internal auditing within private and public sector organisations.

Our Focus
Our advocacy efforts are designed to support IIA-Australia members. The indirect beneficiaries of our advocacy efforts are directors and senior management of corporations, government entities and privately-owned businesses who profit from the quality advice and results our members are able to deliver.

The four key priorities for our current advocacy efforts are:

  1. Promote IIA-Australia’s initiatives in support of members who practice internal audit
  2. Raise the profile of IIA-Australia so that it is regarded as the pre-eminent source of information around issues relating to internal audit, governance, risk and controls
  3. Work with IIA-Global to ensure initiatives developed globally are understood and adopted within Australia
  4. Work with regulators, governments and other key stakeholder groups to promote the interests of IIA-Australia members and to ensure our recommendation and principles are adopted and supported within relevant regulations.
