In about six months we do a follow-up review. This review measures your department's success in implementing the changes agreed to. It is only when this review is complete documenting that the changes have been implemented or are well on their way toward implementation that the audit is considered closed.

The follow-up review starts with a self report by you after we contact you regarding the actions taken and progress in implementing the agreed to action plans. You can speed up the overall process by sending us information and, as appropriate, supporting documentation as you make the changes rather than waiting for us to contact you.

Depending on what you tell us we may need to do additional work to verify what has been done or address a new issue that has come to our attention.
