Re understanding what secure codeing is:

Taking a look at the OWASP development guides and Code review guide is a
start: The intro sections cover what a secure SDLC whould look like etc.
Looking at SAMM can indicate what is required also by examining the domains
and mapping onto the SDLC

Re auditing: (it's not just secure coding, its the whole kahuna)

 Evidence of developer training is a good start

Evidence Secure coding guidelines are nice to see, event better if they have
a review history (looked used!).
A generic secure application development policy could be used which can be
linked to technolofy specific guidelines

Evidence of review and adherence to them.

Evidence of negative testing, negative use cases anti patterns & threat

but there is more.......
