January 5, 2021


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Jan. 4 (PIA)--The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA)-10 conducted an online training course on Effective Internal Audit for ISO 9001:2015, December 28-29, 2020, to continually improve its operations and delivery of services.

With more than 30 NEDA-10 and Regional Development Council–10 staff in attendance, the course aims to equip the staff with basic competencies on internal quality audit and prepare them to be internal auditors of the organization’s quality management system (QMS).

The NEDA-X Management wants to ensure the availability of a pool of well-trained internal quality auditors of its QMS.  

The training conducted by Infoadvance, Inc. enhanced the participants’ understanding of Internal Audit as an essential component of any management system as it serves as a quality tool to check the effectiveness of processes in delivering intended results and trigger improvements.

Aurelio L. Ebita, lead auditor and trainer, underscored that the overall intent of internal audit is to achieve conformity and effectiveness and not to find nonconformities. Should a nonconformity arise, it is raised against a process and not against a person, for improvement.

On December 23, 2020, the SOCOTEC Certification International issued a new Certificate of Registration for ISO 9001:2015 to NEDA-X which will expire September 21, 2023, covering the processes of Socioeconomic and Physical Planning and Policy, Technical and Advisory, Investment Programming, Monitoring and Evaluation and Support Services.  The first certification was issued September 21, 2017 and expired September 21, 2020.
