A pre-assessment audit is performed within an organization by internal staff to measure its strengths and weaknesses against its own procedures or methods and/or against external standards adopted by (voluntary) or imposed on (mandatory) the organization.
A pre-assessment audit is an internal audit conducted by qualified personnel who are employed by the organization and being audited but who have no vested interest in the audit results of the area being audited.
Constantly monitor and improve on internal procedures and standards.
Second Party Audit
A second-party audit is an external audit performed on a supplier by a customer or by a contracted organization on behalf of a customer. A contract is in place, and the goods or services are being, or will be, delivered.
Second-party audits tend to be more formal than first-party audits because audit results could influence the customer’s purchasing decisions.
Constantly monitor and improve on the quality of suppliers’ service and products.
