The Department for International Development (DFID) applies a risk based approach to planning its internal audit assignments. The annual audit plan is developed through a combination of a review of the Department’s high level risk registers and discussions with senior management and the audit committee. The audit plan is flexible to address the evolution of the risk environment and the emergence of new risks.
