Step 9: Audit Follow-up

Audit follow-up will occur for reportable issues (where risk rating is high). We will contact the issue coordinator to determine whether corrective actions have been taken by the date indicated in management’s response.


Follow-up action may occur at the time of the audit if issues have already been addressed prior to the close of the audit and is clear-cut and can be easily confirmed.


Other follow-up on issues will require additional time. The verification of action plans can occur at a later time or as part of a follow up audit.
