Auditing (Governmental) - Auditing (Governmental) for Course Id 2144

Description :

In this course, two retired Federal Regional Inspectors General will explain what government auditors expect to see when they read an audit finding in a governmental audit, including Single Audits.  In governmental audits, a finding is a construct with components that have been in place for over 50 years.  As a result, government auditors expect all findings to have all the components that the Yellow Book calls for.  Issuing a Single Audit with deficient findings can harm a CPA’s finances and his or her reputation.

If you administer government grants, you should also know what a finding should contain in order to properly review findings that CPAs prepare when auditing your organization.
