In the context of compliance, evidence provides proof that a control exists and is working correctly.

You can add a link to a piece of evidence or describe it for each instance of a document that is listed on the Internal controls page. Evidence can be located in the Process documentation folder or on a website. You can also edit evidence that is in electronic format. For more information, see Examples: Internal controls.

  1. Click Compliance on the top link bar, and then click Process documentation on the Quick Launch. The contents of the Process documentation folder are displayed.

  2. Click Add document.

  3. Select the file or files to upload and then click OK.

  1. Click Compliance on the top link bar, and then click Internal controls on the Quick Launch.

When you attach files that were created by using business applications other than the Microsoft Office System, the changes are saved to the local hard disk and not to the Compliance site.

Edit the evidence document on the hard disk and then upload it to the Compliance site.

Deleting an evidence attachment removes the link to the attachment, but does not remove the attachment from the Compliance site. Do one of the following:

  • Overwrite the original attachment.

  • Rename the attachment.
