Audit and assurance

A social impact audit should be robust and accurate. It is recommended that a high degree of transparency is used when applying the Impact Evaluation Standard, especially when it comes to the inclusion of audits in the reporting process.

All organisations reporting using the Impact Evaluation Standard should specify the audit level under which the framework was used. The three levels are:

  • Unaudited – figures and evidence have been entered by staff but have not been checked by anyone else
  • Internally audited – figures and evidence have been checked by one or more staff members acting as a social value reviewer
  • Externally audited by an approved Impact Evaluation Standard assessor – figures and evidence have been checked by a third-party auditor, who is approved by the Impact Evaluation Standard steering committee
