    D. Endorsement/Approval of top management for an independent and formal audit
    Explanation
    An authentic audit program requires endorsement/approval from top management for an independent and formal audit. This ensures that the audit is conducted in a fair and unbiased manner, as top management's approval signifies their commitment to transparency and accountability. It also allows for an independent evaluation of the organization's processes and controls, providing valuable insights and recommendations for improvement. Without top management's endorsement, the audit may lack credibility and may not be viewed as a reliable assessment of the organization's performance.
