Audit program

Audit Programs range from scheduling till the execution of the audit. Audit Programs are used for larger clients with multiple subsidiaries and standards. It is possible to combine audits, create teams based on the required competencies and schedule audit cycles for the upcoming years in the Audit Program step.



After the quote is accepted by the client, all the tasks are transferred to the audit program. The planner gets an overview of all the to be scheduled tasks. For some tasks, the reference visit date and location is already determined during the acceptance of the proposal phase. For others, the audit date and location are still open. The scope and the related competencies needed to perform every task are shown to the planner. When selecting the right auditor for the task, the competencies of the auditor are shown. The complete coverage of all competencies is managed in the competence module, the system will indicate if all the required competencies are covered by the team.


Depending on the standard the quote provides the details of the multi sites. This includes the time, scope, location and other data. Otherwise it can provide the number of site visits without actually mentioning the sites individually. In the planning all to be scheduled tasks are presented. When the quote is providing all information, the planner only has to combine the right team. When only the number of site visits is known, the planner can make a selection of the sites to be audited. In this way he can optimize the planning.

All to be scheduled audits are taken from the quote. Based on the execution date of the initial audit, all other surveillance audit dates are calculated. Zertic will automatically make a list of the best available auditors to schedule for the audit. The list is based on the required competencies, location of the audit and auditor, availability, relationship with the client, and the number of executed audits on site. Zertic will indicate if the surveillance audit is within the boundaries of the standard and birthdate of the certificate.

For larger audits and combinations of audits, the planning can be complex. Zertic supports the planner by providing all information on screen and processing all planning rules applicable for combination audits automatically. The offered hours including the hour reduction due to efficiency of combination audits taken from the quote. You can see on screen what the missing competence of the team is, and which auditor has the required competences to complete the team.
