Pre-Audit Questionnaire (PAQ) - Lockups
The Pre-Audit Questionnaire (PAQ), which is used to gather information during the pre-onsite phase of the audit, identifies the minimum information and supporting documents that the facility should submit to the auditor before the onsite audit begins. Submission of the PAQ and the auditor’s initial analysis of facility and agency documentation are critical components of the audit process. These steps lay the foundation for the audit and form the basis for the auditor’s understanding of the facility’s operations, terminology, structure, population, and other important information.
