It is important to keep a thorough and accurate record of all issues or opportunities identified during the audit. This may involve creating a database or spreadsheet of the issues or opportunities, or simply keeping a written record. The documentation should include a description of the issue or opportunity, as well as any relevant details, such as the parties involved, the terms of the contract, and the potential impact.

Analyze the issues or opportunities
