We often have cases of employees coming forward with a potential conflict. We may have employees who were previously employed in a given department but who are now auditors with us, so we need to make sure we're not putting them on auditing something they were doing before.
If we ask you about potential conflicts of interest, those run the whole gamut. They're not just political. From that point of view, the question is whether there is any reason that you or a member of your family has a connection to the organization that you are auditing that could cause somebody to question your independence to act on this audit.
We ask that on every single audit we do before we start the audit.
