Welcome » IT Booklets » Development and Acquisition » Introduction » Examination Objectives
The objectives of reviewing development, acquisition, and
maintenance activities are to identify weaknesses or risks that
could negatively impact an organization, to identify entities whose
condition or performance requires special supervisory attention,
and to subsequently effect corrective action.
Examiners should conduct risk-focused reviews that assess the
overall effectiveness of an organization's project management
standards, procedures, and controls. Examiners should not expect
organizations to employ elaborate project management techniques in
all situations. However, organizations should employ project
management standards, procedures, and controls commensurate with
the characteristics and risks of their development, acquisition,
and maintenance projects.
