Who does your annual ACH audit?
Is it done by someone internal?
Within your ACH department?
By your Regional Payments Association?

Here it's done by me, the Compliance Officer. I am in no way related to the ACH department, so it gives me independance.

Pulling people out of the ditc...
we have had ACH staff perform, internal audit perform, and regional payments association perform. RPA used this to make 68 findings, with "training" being the suggested fix for most of the 68 (yes, training by RPA, of course, at a fee). We then sent our internal audit staff to training, and they perform. I stopped having the ACH staff perform as I felt there was the "appearance" of a conflict.

Internal auditors or compliance officers perform the audits at most banks that I observed. As pointed out by MadisonCali, an independent person must perform the audit (as required by NACHA). For a small cost, your RBA most likely provides an ACH audit guide with questionnaires that you could follow. Most community banks that I know don't get external auditors involved because of cost issues.
