Deliverables & Milestones

    • Intent is to brainstorm auditing trends and develop potential leading practices by 2Q – 3Q 2014.
    • Develop a standard audit program, that can be customized as needed during 3Q – 4Q 2014.
    • Align the Operational Risk Management book by updating it to reflect the latest auditing trends, leading practices, and available tools that are being used in the industry during 3Q2014 – 2Q2015.
