What if I don't have the time to deal with the auditors?
During the audit opening meeting, we will discuss the audit schedule and try to accommodate time constraints that you may have (e.g., short-staffed, budget season, etc.). Many people think an auditor will spend lots of time with you and take time away from your other obligations. However, much of our work is done behind the scenes. We may need to meet key personnel on the audit two or three times for maybe an hour at a time over the audit period. We may spend equal amounts of time, and perhaps less, with others in the department, but we will not be monopolizing anyone's time, and much of our work (such as audit planning and report writing) is done in our offices.
