The audits are useful for reducing non-conformities, identifying areas for improvement and reducing management waste. These are in the interest of the contract between the Clients and the Manager and improve the quality perceived by consumers- users in public catering services (school, health, social welfare, railway contracts, airport concessions).
The effectiveness of internal audit activities depends on several factors. Among these, of primary importance are the type of mandate given to the auditor, the specific competence of the auditors and their degree of organizational independence and professional diligence.
