Performance Audit

A measurement and report of the effectiveness and results of certain business procedures. Performance audits are usually performed internally, and check to see that procedures have their intended effect. Unlike a compliance audit, which simply ensures that procedures are being followed, performance audits challenge the assumptions and goals of procedures, with an eye toward improving efficiency. A performance audit may recommend changes in procedures resulting from observed inefficiencies in existing procedures. See also: Audit, Assurance.
