Also have a look at ISO17799. On Sans you'll find a checklist based on ISO 17799 which will give you a thorough idea of what an audit may look like: https://www2.sans.org/score/ISO_17799checklist.php

Point 3: that's something you will have to build on your own. Strategic IT plans are very dependent on the sector of the organisation and on its goals. They are also dependent on the state of which IT is now in.

BTW, what happened to point 4?

      It means the status of hardware utlization by softwares installed on them. For example SQL server on a hardware,  what is CPU utilization, how is HDD usage, is there enough space, can CPU/RAM hadle the load. I used a software called Aida32 before for collecting hardware and software information. Start>Run>perfmon may satisfy your needs at this point but advanced performance monitoring may need extra software like Tivoli or OpenView
