IAS conducts an annual audit planning process which involves the Risk Assessment Phase and the Audit Plan Preparation Phase.
The risk assessment process starts at the beginning of each calendar year and culminates in April with an annual audit plan for the upcoming fiscal year. The plan is reviewed by UCOP and the Lab's Audit Committee, and is approved by DOE.
The plan consists of several audit areas that are selected based on their score on the risk assessment, on contract requirements, and on specific requests by UCOP and/or DOE.
