The Director will brief all Edutech staff members on their conduct during the audit:

  1. Require honesty—employees are required to provide prompt, honest, and factual answers to all questions from the auditors.

  3. The Director will support all requests made by auditing officials:
    • Making key employees available for auditors within a reasonable amount of time.
    • Providing records requested. If records are nonexistent, they will obtain whatever is available.

  • Report Follow Up after 6 months, identifying:
  • Audit points resolved—how they were satisfied.
