Uh-Oh! You Got Audited
A percentage of all exam applications, PMI reports, are selected for an audit. The audit selection, again PMI reports, is a completely random processso when your number’s up, your number’s up. You won’t know if your application is audited or not until after you pay for the exam. Pretty convenient, huh?
If you’re audited, then PMI will send you via email access to its experience verification forms and other goodies. You’ll have to contact all of your supervisors for the projects that you’ve worked on, and they’ll need to complete the forms. The forms require the manager to verify the work you’ve referenced in your exam application. Your manager will also need to sign the form, seal it in an envelope, and sign the seal on the back of the form, too.
It’s up to you complete and assemble all of the paperwork to prove the work and education claims in your exam application. You should gather all this documentation and return it to PMI in one envelope so things don’t get lost and your application approval isn’t delayed. And if you’re wondering what happens if you don’t complete the audit? They have a party with your forfeited cash in your honor.
