I have. The key is to get to the auditor, themselves, not the people who
interpret what the auditor told the person who took the specs for the
person who managed the person who wrote the gant chart for the person the
auditor reported person to who interpreted it for your boss. Etc., etc.,
etc.

It's very helpful to speak directly to the person who has to do the audit,
and find out what *they* can handle directly. They're often quite
reasonable and willing to cooperate in setting up a more efficient transfer
of knowledge. It's often the layers in between that make things.....
strange.
