Internal Audit Engagement Letter

The internal audit engagement letter states the nature of the audit. It provides notice and scope of the upcoming audit. The auditor provides this to the auditee (could be a client) prior to the audit. The letter prevents surprise reaction from the clients. 

This letter can be as simple as an audit agenda or formal as a registration notice.
