The success of control self-assessment (CSA) highly depends on:
having line managers assume a portion of the responsibility for control monitoring.
assigning staff managers the responsibility for building, but not monitoring, controls.
the implementation of a stringent control policy and rule-driven controls.
the implementation of supervision and the monitoring of controls of assigned duties.
The primary objective of a CSA program is to leverage the internal audit function by shifting some

control self-assessment (CSA) program depends on thedegree to which line managers assume
responsibility for controls- Choices B, C and D are characteristics of a traditional audit approach,
not a CSA approach.
