The Lead Auditor is a bridge between technical and non-technical, between management and non-management. Lead Auditor is a full-time position and will usually be a formal or informal leader of a dedicated audit team. The Lead Auditor may have the authority to decide what is being audited against or, if this is determined elsewhere, to what detail and depth the auditing is done. The Lead Auditor may also be the primary author, editor, and approver of the final audit report.
