Re: Internal Audit Scoring System

Assigning catagories and numbering is like the old "Ticket-thon Game" we used to play when I was a cop........Whoever writes the most tickets over a specific period gets the cash prize being offered.

Wanna take a guess about the value-addedness of those tickets to traffic safety?

(I won it many times and still hold the record for tickets issued on one shift-74. The secret is you make them out in advance)

Now, do you see why numerical values assigned to audit findings don't work?

Re: Internal Audit Scoring System

This is a way to rank the severity of the finding. If you use a score ranking system this will give the auditee a way of prioritizing there corrective action. This works much like using a Pareto to classify nonconformities, it focusses your attention the bigger picture.

Sorry, but I don't think a 'score sheet' like this does focus attention on a 'bigger picture'. Apart from other issues, there's no attempt of a process approach, just a clause by clause one. Which appears to be demanding documentation of everything listed.

Re: Internal Audit Scoring System

Among the various arguers for some kind of 'scoring' of audits, I have yet to see any certifiers, registrars or third-party auditors. I think this is worth pausing to consider. Auditing is, for many registrars, their core business (or a large part of it).

So if there was a strong benefit to some kind of ranking or scoring, common sense would suggest that at least a couple of certifiers would have leaped to do so in order to score a competitive advantage.

I can just see the PR now (can't you?)

Go with Super Great Certifiers! Our exclusive, patented, totally-unavailable-anywhere-else scoring system will give YOUR SENIOR MANAGEMENT an exact score at audits!!!!!

Don't waste wondering how, when or where you should do stuff - because with our Unique Wonderful Scoring System, you'll know instantly!


And think of the opportunities to cross-sell training courses in how their clients can learn to score their audits.

Yup - I'd see value added by "ranking" NCs based on the current & future impact to the organization.

E.g. NC1: Calibration stickers not on 1 of 12 voltmeters (of 784 in the organization) as required by Procedure XXX.

NC2: Nonconforming product shipped to customer for 1 of 12 deliveries audited.


Potential impact of NC1 (frequency x severity x likelihood) = $1,000 per year (expenses to take corrective action and reply to auditor)

Potential impact of NC2 = $200,000 per year (loss of customer, marketing expense to replace lost revenue stream).

This sort of analysis will guide a time-challenged manager where to direct her attention when it comes to correcting NCs.

Caution Re: Internal Audit Scoring System

If you take the traditional approach to auditing, then many have to rely on some kind of 'attention getter' like a scoring or grading system, in the hope that management will magically 'see' what needs attention and therefore support any corrective action. I'm thinking this type of thing is attempting to address the wrong end of the problem.

If an audit is planned effectively, involves management in the selection of scope and criteria, plus employs a competent auditor who can evaluate the process to diagnose the issues - the management will be able to determine from the content of the audit report what needs to be done to improve........

Anything else is merely arbitrary and takes up more time than necessary. Work smart, not hard.......
