Audits are rarely used by organizations to effectively improve their information governance (IG) programs. The objective of this qualitative, semi-structured interview research was to determine if an organization that performed an audit of their IG program could improve compliance and policy objectives. The sample included four participants from Federal, state, and municipal government agencies that met level three of ARMA's GARP Maturity Model (2012) regarding an organization’s regulatory, compliance, and policy requirements. Participants conducted at least one audit of their IG program over an eight-year period. The findings concluded that the utilization of audits improved IG program policy compliance and mitigated information risk in an organization. Implications and recommendations are discussed.
