The first Blue Pages Service Level Agreement (SLA 6800) was about national coordination and updating blue page lists. This agreement was valid from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2013 and was valued at $238,422. The second Blue Pages Service Level Agreement (SLA 8541 – Managed Telecommunication Services) concerned the management of telecommunications services and was valid from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2016. It was valued at $8,050,215. As I was not familiar with service level agreements or SLAs for internal audit, I asked him for an explanation. His answer was that as part of the introduction of a new “culture” in our organizations, we are preparing business and service plans. Since internal auditing provides a “service” to the company, the service contract is between us and our most important customers. It is a kind of “contract” of what we are going to do. The service plan is a general overview of the entire department. It may contain a SWOT scan, a balance scorecard, KPIs, etc. The plan is like a brochure or a “recovery” of the department. Do you have examples of service plans and service contracts for internal audit services? Adequate governance processes and internal controls for lifecycle activities in the service level agreement ensure that SSC services meet customer expectations.
In particular, appropriate oversight structures, roles, responsibilities, instruments and procedures for resolving House of Commons service agreements are needed to ensure that the expectations of the SSC and the House of Commons are met. The Deputy Minister of Labour should put in place a process to monitor and monitor client problems to enable a quick solution by clearly defining resolution procedures and action plans and ensuring continuous improvement in the management of service level agreements. There appears to have been sufficient interest, as the following responses are followed by examples of service agreements for subscribers to the AuditNet list. Thank you to everyone who responded, and even more thanks to those who shared their service agreements for the benefit of all. In our organization, each audit protocol describes scope, objectives, results, approach, etc. It also includes our budgeted, cost and signed by the auditor and audit. This is considered an ALS for each test performed. The Senior Assistant Minister, projects and client relations should ensure that external reporting obligations for the service level agreement are met in accordance with the various service level agreements. This section of AuditNet contains resources and information on ALS, both from the point of view of audit by reviewers and the creation of a review division. If you have information or resources that you would like to share through monitoring programs, slOA examples or other resources you would like to share, please contact us. Very good question, we currently have no MS or SA, but I would be very interested to learn more and see an example.
I think this could be a very good way to reiterate (among other things) that the responsibility for controls lies with management and how we want to help them achieve their goals through internal testing and advice. Arrive in a timely manner with SOX. As noted below, SLAs are used between a department and its key customers/clients. As an internal audit, our main client is the audit committee. We present to the audit committee a preliminary plan identifying areas at risk and our audit plan in these areas. We will then provide updates later this year. Our KPIs are measured in a few ways, first the number of results per audit unit (i.e. the number of audit reports issued), the number of problems by industry and degree of severity (type 1, type 2, etc.), a summary of audits with improved needs or unsatisfactory evaluations, and we did an investigation of the units we audited.
