Audit Resolution


For IG audits, resolution is the point in the audit follow-up process when a management decision is made to act on audit findings, recommendations, or advice (as opposed to the completion of agreed upon actions). For financial and operational audit reports, resolution normally takes place when the official management response on the audit recommendations is signed. For contractual audit reports, audit resolution usually is evidenced when the contracting officer sends written notification to the audited organization initiating appropriate corrective actions, submitting a renegotiation memorandum/plan, or setting forth the basis and rationale for accepting or rejecting the audit report recommendations. An audit report may be considered resolved despite the right of persons outside the Department to negotiate, appeal, or litigate. For GAO reports, resolution is the point at which the Agency responds to Congress.
