Audit and Evaluation Branch
Welcome to the Audit and Evaluation Branch site.
Through its internal audit and evaluation services and the support it provides to the Departmental Audit Committee and Departmental Evaluation Committee, the Audit and Evaluation Branch (AEB) reinforces good stewardship practices and sound decision making by providing assurance to the Deputy Minister, Senior Associate Deputy Minister, and to departmental management.
Internal audit is a professional, independent and objective appraisal function that uses a disciplined, evidence-based approach to assess and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes. The Internal Audit Directorate of Industry Canada operates under the Treasury Board Policy on Internal Audit and the Internal Auditing Standards for the Government of Canada, which are based on the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) International Professional Practices Framework.
Evaluation assesses relevance and performance of programs to support policy and program improvement, decision making and public reporting. The Evaluation Directorate of Industry Canada operates under a number of statutes, policies and directives. These include the Financial Administration Act, the Treasury Board Policy on Evaluation, and the Treasury Board Policy on Transfer Payments.
