Synopsis of Module

This module covered a number of different types of assurances  that organizations use to ensure data accuracy as well as performance improvement.  This module emphasized data accuracy rather than performance improvement.  However other modules in this set will  discuss performance improvement in greater depth.  Both internal assurances (internal controls and internal audits) and external assurances (independent third party assurances and third party commentaries) help the organization achieve its reporting and performance sustainability objectives.
