A100 Optimizer checklist - Initial Engagement Decisions

This document contains a set of questions designed to determine the scope and nature of your engagement.

The first question sets the level of collaboration (the query documents) that will be used in the engagement.

A higher level of online collaboration with your client generally improves efficiency in the engagement. However this may not work for all clients. Audit International allows you to select from three levels:

  • High - queries are used to:
    • Ask your client to answer detailed questions that flow into audit documentation, allowing you to quickly review and reuse.
    • Ask your client to share documents with you. Each audit section has a separate query.
  • Limited - queries are used to:
    • Ask your client to share documents with you. All audit sections are bundled into one query.
  • None - Queries are not used, you will have to request, receive and upload documents outside of Audit International.
