Benefits of an Internal Audit

As a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider, it’s essential to ensure your systems are robust, efficient and comply with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission’s (NDIS Commission) standards. Completing an internal audit is an effective way of identifying gaps in your systems and processes, addressing them, and preparing your organisation for an audit.

Here are the key benefits of completing an internal audit for NDIS providers:

Identifying gaps in your systems:

 

An internal audit provides an opportunity to review your organisation’s systems and processes against the NDIS Commission’s standards. It helps you to identify any gaps in your systems and processes and areas that require improvement. By understanding your gaps, you can take corrective action to address them.

Addressing gaps and rectifying issues:

 

Once you have identified gaps in your systems and processes, you can take corrective action to address them. This helps to improve the quality of your services and ensures compliance with the NDIS Commission’s standards. By addressing the gaps, you can reduce the risk of non-conformances during an audit.

Preparedness for audit:

 

Completing an internal audit helps your organisation to be prepared for an audit. You will have a better understanding of the NDIS Commission’s standards and how they apply to your organisation. This enables you to identify any areas that may require improvement and take corrective action before an audit. 

Reducing non-conformances on audit day:

 

By identifying and addressing gaps in your systems and processes, you can reduce the risk of non-conformances during an audit. This helps to ensure that your organisation meets the NDIS Commission’s standards, and you can continue to provide quality services to your clients.

 

In conclusion, completing an internal audit is an effective way for NDIS providers to identify gaps in their systems, address them, and prepare for an audit. By taking corrective action to address the gaps, you can reduce the risk of non-conformances on audit day, ensuring that your organisation meets the NDIS Commission’s standards.
