What is Internal Auditing?
Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.
Air Force Audit Agency provides all levels of Air Force management with independent, objective, and quality audit services that include: reviewing and promoting economy, effectiveness, and efficiency of operations; evaluating programs and activities and assisting management in achieving intended results; and assessing and improving Air Force fiduciary stewardship and the accuracy of financial reporting.

Most auditors begin at the GS-7 or GS-9 level and are assigned to an office within the Field Activities Directorate. The Field Activities Directorate consists of offices located at 46 installations and performs internal audit functions at installations throughout the world.
