What do PMI ask for during an audit?

What kind of documentation do PMI ask for when they select someone for an audit on his PMP application? Another question, and I know this may sound crazy, but if they select me for an audit, is there a chance that they'll pay me an actual visit to my place of work to make sure of my application?

I haven't heard of a single instance where PMI made visits to the candidate's place of work to check if what he's saying is right. This is not expedient at all...

When PMI selects you for an audit, they typically ask for the following:

- The signature of your direct manager in every project you were involved in, to make sure that you actually worked on that project.
- A photocopy of your degree/diploma that you claimed to have in your application.
- Proof of how you acquired the (35) contact hours: This is typically a certificate given by the school where you took the formal project management education.

Once you gather all the documentation above, then you have to mail everything (in one envelope) to PMI in New Square, Pennsylvania.
