The Normative Framework in Management Audit: Proposed Standards for the Evaluation of Management
María Isabel González Bravo
One of the most important difficulties in the arena of management auditing or operational audit is the absence of a normative framework equivalent to that which guides the professional financial auditor in undertaking his/her analysis and giving his/her opinion. The aim of this piece of work is to try to solve in some measure this problem, proposing a normative framework composed of principles and standards that could be applicable to this type of activity. Specifically, the paper develops evaluatory standards centred on the basic aspects of management audit work: The evaluation of the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of the entity. Further, it proposes some criteria that could serve as a basis for such evaluation and help to identify situations where organisational behaviour is not economic, efficient or effective.
