Scared Straight — The Consequences of Poor Audit Quality
Based on information from peer reviews and federal agency reviews, audit quality concerns sometimes arise from inadequate education or training, noncompliance with certain aspects of auditing or quality control standards, or a lack of experience working in specialized areas. When such problems are noted, there can be considerable consequences to an audit practice. This GAQC archived Web event will describe the various ways governmental audits are reviewed from a quality perspective, including practice monitoring and Office of Inspector General (OIG) desk and quality control reviews, as well as the resulting process and practical advice for when audit quality problems are noted in such reviews.
