The role of the Auditor-In-Charge (AIC) in the organization is an unenviable one. It comes with numerous responsibilities. Apart from providing directions to the audit team; the AIC should also perform responsibilities such as:
- Assessing the quality of the work of the audit team
- Providing on-going communication to audit management and audit clients
- Developing the draft report
- Preparing for the exit conference
- Assessing the performance of the audit team.
All these functions have to be carried out in addition to nearly innumerable other minor activities. Since the AIC is the one finally responsible for the success or otherwise of an audit; everything depends on how efficiently, smartly and diligently the AIC carries out those functions.
