Welcome » IT Booklets » Operations » Appendix A: Examination Procedures
EXAMINATION OBJECTIVES: Assess the quality and effectiveness of
the institution's technology operations. These procedures will help
disclose the adequacy of risk management of, and controls around,
the institution's technology operations.
Examiners may choose to use only particular components of the
workprogram based upon the size, complexity, and nature of the
institution's business or upon a risk-focused examination plan.
The objectives and procedures are divided into Tier I and Tier
Tier I and Tier II are a tool set examiners will use when
selecting examination procedures for their particular examination.
Examiners should use these procedures as necessary to support
examination objectives. Examiners should coordinate this coverage
with other examiners to avoid duplication of effort while including
the operations-related issues found in other workprograms.
