Can audits turn into investigations, or investigations turn into audits?

Auditors are required to design audits to obtain reasonable assurances about compliance with laws and regulations. While conducting an audit, the auditor may become aware of potential criminal or serious administrative violations. This information may be referred for a possible investigation.

Conversely, while performing an investigation, the investigator may identify weaknesses in procedures or controls. This information may be referred for a possible audit.
