Internal Audit

Moore are leaders in the provision of internal auditing in Ireland with a diverse portfolio of clients including state bodies, regulated financial service providers and other public interest-oriented organisations.


By definition, internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and advisory service designed to add value and improve and organisations’ operations. It should help an organisation accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of governance, risk management and control processes. From the perspective of an Irish state body or regulated entity, internal auditing can go beyond this: it can contribute to an organisations overall stability and sustainability by providing assurance on its operational efficiency, reliability of reporting, compliance, safeguarding of assets and its ethical culture. This in turn can foster public trust and confidence. At Moore, we have a leading edge internal audit offering that is fully aligned to global best practices in the field of internal audit as set out by the Institute of Internal Auditors. We can bring you a quality internal audit offering that will foster public trust and confidence.

Our internal audit work practices conform to standards as issued by the Global Institute of Internal Auditors and the Internal Audit Standards as issued by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and as stated in the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies.

Moore has developed an in-house toolkit of work programmes, templates, reports, reference materials, and guidance notes that collectively support the internal audit activity of Moore. We maintain a Quality Assurance and Improvement Programme and as part of this, we are subject to external assessments to ensure we fully conform to standards of the IIA.
