For purposes of this paper, internal audit is defined as the function whose original job is to benchmark compliance with management controls and standards. The internal audit function may be a separate department, or it may be as small as a portion of one employee's duties. Management controls and standards will be widely defined to include anything that management wants to set a measurable standard for. Quality will always refer to a company's product(s) and its perceived level of quality by customers.
