Linking Procedures to Risk

Specific procedures in work programs and checklists can be linked to risks to document how the risk was addressed in the audit. You must be in the appropriate work program or checklist document to link procedures, and the document must be included in the Addressed field in the Risk dialog. Once linked, risks appear beside the linked procedures within work program or checklist documents. As well, the linked procedures appear with the corresponding risks in the Risk Report under the Audit Response column.

You can link procedures from the Risk dialog or at the procedure level within the work program or checklist document. If a common procedure is linked to risk, the link is unique to that instance of the common procedure.

Note: Once a procedure and a risk are linked, this link is maintained even if the risk is removed from the file and re-inserted.
