The emergence of institutions is closely linked to the need to address the essential problems of society, the solution of which the existing instruments cannot be or will not bring the expected results. The main prerequisite for the emergence of institutions is a situation in which society is unable to deal with the emerging circumstances.
According to the recognized leaders in the field of audit S.M. Bychkova and E.Y. Itygilova  the nature of the institute of audit activity is social activity of society and the individual as a whole, as well as its objectification and specialization. Any social institution interacts with the social environment or society through the implementation of the fundamental functions of social institutions — to meet the needs of society. Moreover, all institutions are organized social systems, which are characterized by the people involved in such systems, as well as the audit institution — Institute of Economics — is a society pursues economic interests.
In the process of operation, the main threat that may arise — dysfunction of the audit institution. If the changing needs of society and the institutions don’t conform to the structure and functions, the role of their work in society will be reduced and may lead to the formality of their existence. Prevention events on auditing activities dysfunction due to changing operating conditions, is one of the most important tasks of the present stage of development of the audit. At the same event the points out in his article E.Y. Itygilova , marking a key role to overcome audit dysfunction.

The Figure 1 is a projection of the formal and informal rules, their intersections, as well as the projection of the intersection with social institutions. When a certain combination of intersections achieved equilibrium of the system. Existing projections audit institution may be presented as a model of institutional relations, as in his article mentions E.Y. Itygilova , where there are 4 options inconsistent behavior: the presence of the possibility, but not the ability to assess the quality; ability, but the lack of opportunities to assess the quality; interest in the audit, but the inability to rely on the audit opinion; obligation to audit, but the lack of interest in it. There are several ways to overcome the dysfunction of the audit:
- A detailed analysis of each of the emerging issues in the audit of the institute;
- an integrated approach to the analysis of the entire array of audit issues;
- improve the quality of information to auditors;
- improve the quality of audit information (through audit);
- improving the internal regulations of the audit activity, as well as self-regulation of the Institute as a whole;
- the introduction of uniform requirements by the self-regulatory organizations to their members — audit organizations.
The proposed list of activities is not exhaustive, however, to a large extent can partially remove the persistent problems of audit institute dysfunction.
