ARGUS auditors will conduct the audit on-site. Depending on the scope, the audit will generally require two days and two auditors, a maintenance and operations auditor. All post-audit time frames are calculated from the date of the closing meeting.
Within 10 calendar days of your audit, ARGUS will conduct a quality control review. Once completed, a Corrective Action Report will be provided, if applicable. If there are no findings your Final Report will be provided 30 days from the completion of the quality control review.
If your audit has no findings, ARGUS will close the audit. The Final Audit Report is made available to you as soon as your audit is closed.
