How to use Nessus to check GPO is compliant

As part of our companies security compliance policy - each new/upgraded windows server must be built as per our security policy document . This includes gpo's , disk type  , net configuration , services ,etc  .
Due to the myriad amount of gpo's that are enforced , is there a way of pointing Nessus to a server and getting it to check each security setting ? As opposed to manually checking each part of the policy using 'rsop' or 'secpol' ?
I have '.inf' files of every gpo - can anyone advise of an easy way of putting this into Nessus ?

nessus does its compliance check wrt to their .audit config (xml based) file so it is actually to have the Microsoft policy .inf being converted into .audit for such checks. Nessus provides a tool, e.g. i2a to convert Microsoft .inf policy files directly to a Nessus 3 .audit file. It should be available for download on the Tenable Portal (need login credentials for this customer portal) under:- Downloads - Compliance and Audit Files - Compliance Checks Tools

I understand only Professional feed users and Security Center users have access to it. Ref this guide which is handy (pdf) and see section on "Converting Windows .inf Files to .audit Files with i2a" for details
