Chief audit executives (CAEs) occupy a unique position within their organizations, with a comprehensive understanding of a number of business facets including:

  •       Risks and controls.
  •       Company’s long-term strategy.
  •       Industry sector.
  •       Regulatory environment.

This knowledge and experience make the CAE an attractive candidate to assume additional organizational responsibilities beyond traditional internal auditing, from risk management and compliance roles to personnel development or conferring on the company’s business strategy.

The Evolving Role of the CAE: Taking on Compliance and ERM explores the benefits and challenges—to the organization, internal audit department, and CAE—of these expanding roles.

  •       What responsibilities are CAEs currently taking on outside of their traditional internal audit role?
  •       Why have some organizations expanded the responsibilities of the CAE?
  •       Does the role of the CAE vary by the organization type (e.g., by sector or industry)?
  •       What are the perceived benefits and challenges associated with expanding the CAE’s role?                             

For some CAEs, the challenges associated with having expanded responsibilities are mitigated through various compensating controls and practices. This research describes some of these mitigating practices and how CAEs with expanded roles can continue to strike the appropriate balance between value-added activities and their independent assurance responsibilities.
