So why is gaining an understanding of controls necessary?
The understanding of internal controls assists the auditor in assessing the risks of material misstatement, which in turn assists in designing and implementing audit responses that are tailored to a client's assessed risks. This is true regardless of the size of the entity.
Without properly understanding controls, an auditor may not identify risks associated with the entity's internal controls and therefore may not design and implement appropriate responses.
Auditing internal controls for a government entity is more subjective than auditing other areas of a client. There is no “one size fits all” set of internal controls. This online CPE course reviews the COSO Framework for Internal Control and discusses auditing a client’s internal controls. From conducting walkthroughs to hypothesis testing, we will review the various aspects of auditing and evaluating internal controls.
This online continuing education course will review the component evaluation of the internal controls and will discuss the difference between sampling and using data analytics to test populations. We will specifically address the government auditing standards as they relate to internal controls.
