Real-Time Performance Audits: Helping Governments Solve Problems, Manage Risks and Improve Operations

In Partnership with the Center for Accountability and Performance
October 29 | 1 p.m. ET

To meet the demands of policymakers, the public and agency managers for more timely information and insights, auditors have begun using a “real-time” approach to help alert governments to potential problems while they can still be fixed to prevent negative or costly outcomes. As opposed to more traditional, after-the-fact audits, real-time audits are used to evaluate planning, controls and monitoring frameworks before a significant project or program is implemented, or as implementation is just getting underway.

In this webinar, we'll discuss:
  • Examples of real-time auditing from federal, state and local government
  • Important lessons learned from these experiences and
  • How this approach can help governments address potential problems, manage risks and improve operations before full-scale implementation begins
