This Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC) Web event covers auditor considerations related to internal control over compliance in single audit. Understanding and testing internal control over compliance is an important part of a single audit and requires a strong understanding of underlying internal control concepts. Unfortunately, this area has also been shown to be problematic in quality reviews of single audit engagements. This event covers the following topics:
Uniform Guidance requirements for internal control;
Understanding the auditee’s process for complying and the “what could go wrongs;”
Evaluating whether controls have been placed into operation and are designed effectively;
Testing controls; and
The importance of documentation.
