Our goal is to improve the Organization's risk management, control and governance processes
One year of performance measurement of IAD using the OIOS Programme Impact Pathway Framework
As recommended by the Independent Audit Advisory Committee (IAAC), the Internal Audit Division has established a number of performance metrics not only to ensure that it delivers on its mandate, strategy and goals, but also to enhance internal control over audit processes and to measure the outcome and impact of its activities on the Organization.
The newly adopted system is part of an initiative across OIOS to develop programme impact pathways to complement the Office's strategic framework and sharpen the focus on results.
Similar to a logical framework, the pathways provide a visual road map of inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes and impact and the causal relationships among these elements. It measures IAD's performance against 15 indicators related to activities, outputs, outcome and impact. IAD has completed one full year of using the pathway indicators and reported on its performance against them on a quarterly basis in 2014.
The 2014 annual performance report showed that while IAD’s performance against the indicators of outputs, outcomes and impact were generally satisfactory, improvements were needed for activity level indicators, especially in meeting the targets on timeliness to complete audits. For example, IAD delivered 85 per cent of its targeted outputs in 2014. In addition, all of its recommendations were accepted by programme managers against a target of 95 per cent. See more
