If you’re looking for FREE audit work plans, AuditNet.org is probably your best bet.
You can get a free account that allows you to access a limited number of work plans, usually basic ones. A premium account gives you access to all content . See their Subscription Plans for more info, and note that they call work plans ‘audit templates’.
If you have an ACL support agreement, you may be able to access AuditNet for FREE!
Last time I looked, over 100 work plans were free, and a total of 2600 were available.
Most of the work plans have been contributed by fellow auditors and are of varying quality, but some are very good. Either way, it’s a great place to start. Even if you pay for your own basic level membership, it’s worth the cost.
I’m always surprised when I meet auditors who don’t know about the site OR that they already have premium access to AuditNet. How’s that? If your company uses Audit Command Language (ACL) AND you have an ACL premium support agreement, you can access AuditNet as a premium subscriber for FREE.
If you can log into the ACL Support Center, search for AuditNet and click the link (it used to be called Visit AuditNet Now, but ACL renames and moves their links too much). That link logs you into to AuditNet as a premium subscriber so that you can download any of the work plans.
If you know about other sites like this or would like to share your opinion of AuditNet, I’d love to hear from you. Please tweet this post so all your friends learn about AuditNet and how they can get premium content for FREE!
