Audit preparedness and best management practices require internal control complete with communication, planning, implementation, monitoring, and assessment. COSO (Committee of Sponsoring Organizations) provides guidance for internal control including the concept of Three Lines of Defense and related applications. IMA is one of the five COSO sponsors, along with the AICPA, the IIA, FEI, and the AAA. This presentation builds on the definition of COSO and subsequent guidance with frameworks to assist all organizations with their responsibility for effective internal control.
