Healthcare organizations are undergoing constant construction and renovation to build the physical facilities needed to accommodate growth in existing and new services. However, most internal audit departments are challenged to handle the rigors of auditing multimillion-dollar construction projects.
Construction auditing requires a depth of experience that the typical healthcare internal auditor may not have. Many internal audit departments cannot justify the costs of maintaining this subject matter expertise in-house. Construction audit consultants can provide this expertise to your organization. Your department can do many things to maximize the benefits of these consultants.
