Could PMO replace audit function?

Dear all,

I would like to get a piece of advice about strange suggestion that I received. 
I was invited to a meeting to discuss on the skippable scope for project audit under PMO(Project management office)  functions.
You may pop up the question mark when you read above statement, but literally it's true. 

The host of the meeting wants to give some incentives to those organizations which adopt PMO by allowing to omit audits on the projects under the PMO.
Of course auditors oppose the idea, but this meeting will be held to decide to what extent project audit could be omitted on the project under the PMO's oversight.
And I was invited to give my opinions. 

Would you advice me what I could say with polite and reasonable language please?

Thanks in advance,

RE: Could PMO replace audit function?

It's not clear to me how the host thinks an organization's management can make the decision with regards to whether something will/will not be audited. That is ultimately up to the CAE and the Audit Committee. To allow an area to not be audited would invite less then appropriate activities to take place within that environment.
