Good Afternoon Everyone!

It's been about a year since I've polled the experts of this group but a
question has arisen and I could use some fresh input.    The question
concerns government audits, in particular, what role does/should the RM
personnel have during an audit?    As I work for a pharmaceutical firm I'll
use the following as an example:   If the FDA is auditing a particular
department should the RM personnel be in the room while the audit is being
conducted or should they be "on call" in case questions come up that the
department personnel cannot answer?

Personally, I would go with the "on call" option but that may be because I
strongly dislike (yes I know that they are a necessary evil)  audits of any
kind and would prefer to remain as far away from them as possible.

Your comments are welcome!
