Yes audit is related to H1, however the auditing body is DOL and it shows the breadth of audit that they performed.

OK peeps. Understand your frustrations, Couple of things.
EB2 Category/filing is not based on applicant. It is based on the job description and justification. For eg: It's not justified to file EB2 for a job requiring coding skills - see it from DOL's point of view. Also, your manager's advice plays a big role as well..
Please stop generalizing based on hear-say. CTS employees, please refer to internal policy/guidelines for PERM/GC filing. It clearly mandates the rules for filing in EB1/EB2 etc.
Audit or no-audit, no one knows. All depends on applicant's luck. If all the paperwork, experience and justification is good, then it should be OK (except for random audit case). This is an inherent risk - just like with anything else in this world.

DOL did a comprehensive audit on CTS, please read this : http://www.cognizant.com/aboutus/audit-results

If the wait is frustrating, I don't think Cognizant/GIT can help much - they are just following the policy/law, nobody wants to go thru audit.
But, there is a solution (that 99.99% of the readers here will definitely choose to ignore) : Try to vent this frustration in numbers with your local Congressman/Senator. Write letters, Call offices, or meet in person. Ask GIT head or VP to sign petition towards eliminating backlogs or improving regulations.

P.S: My case has been filed under EB2, but keeping fingers-crossed. You never know about DOL/USCIS/GIT.
