The information provided in the audit report needs to inform your audit client and sometimes persuade them on your recommendations.  The key to writing a focused report is knowing your readers and how they plan to use the report.  And because the report is usually read by various people at various levels of the organization, the report must be structured to the understanding of all the readers. There are also certain requirements by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) that must be included in every audit report.
