Does a covered entity have to have the right to audit a business associate directly?

As per the contractual agreement between CE and BA, CE’s can audit the business associates. Any breach by BA’s will affect the CE’s. However, CE’s cannot force BA’s to audit their facilities. BA’s who doesn’t cooperate for an audit is a red flag and their business relationship should be revisited.
