Financial Services Code: Time for review

When we published the Code, we promised to conduct a thorough review after three years. The time has come for us to deliver, writes Ian Peters, CEO of the Chartered IIA.

Culture: embedding best behaviour

Organisations that embody the new approach to culture are shifting the focus to rewarding the right behaviours rather than punishing the wrong behaviours, writes Ian Peters, CEO of the Chartered IIA.

Stronger united

Institute membership is about much more than access to resources, it gives internal audit a unified voice and upholds a code of ethics, writes Ian Peters, CEO of the Chartered IIA.

Bridging the trust deficit

At a time when public confidence in corporate governance is weak, internal audit can make a real difference in ensuring that a healthy organisational culture is prevalent, writes Ian Peters, CEO of the Chartered IIA.

Outsourcing: auditing contracts

It is essential that internal auditors are involved in the procurement and management of outsourcing contracts, writes Ian Peters, CEO of the Chartered IIA.

IIA examines contract and supplier risk

A forthcoming IIA research project will look at how organisations manage their supply chain risks – and where internal audit should be involved, writes Ian Peters, CEO of the IIA.
