An audit performed by IEEE is charged according to the size of the conference (.6% of revenue). Service fees are capped at $6,000, for conferences generating revenues of $1,000,000 or above. If the conference decides to hire an Independent Auditor to perform the services locally, please advise to obtain the necessary approval(s).
If you choose to use IEEE auditing team, please review the audit checklist prior to the start of your conference’s financial activity. This will prepare you for all of the supporting documentation you will need to gather throughout your conference lifecycle
If you choose to use an external auditor, the auditor will need to be reviewed and approved by the IEEE Internal Audit team prior to the start of any audit work. Note that the outside auditor’s CPA license must be sent to our internal audit team at firstname.lastname@example.org in order for the auditor to be approved. Please review the Outside Auditor MOA, external auditor selection criteria, and general conference audit steps, which can all be provided by the IEEE Internal Audit team.
