The GAO’s Yellow Book standards set a high bar for auditors of government programs.  The 2018 revision significantly alters the auditor independence standard.  The Yellow Book standards encompass performance audits, financial audits, and attestation engagements.

Major Topics:

  • Audit plans
  • Evidence
  • Continuing professional education
  • Quality control standards
  • Reportable conditions including waste and abuse
  • Documentation
  • Reporting
  • Independence

Objectives Include:

  • Select the standards that apply to your engagement
  • Define requirements for peer review and quality control
  • Apply the 2018 independence and competence standards to your team
  • Use the elements of a finding to flesh out an audit issue
  • Label reportable conditions as waste, abuse, fraud, non-compliance, & an internal control weakness
  • Differentiate between types of audits

Course registration is limited to 60 attendees.
