3 Credits: Auditing (Governmental)

Course Description

Navigating the intricate landscape of auditing standards for state and local governments, especially when dealing with federal funds, can be daunting for auditors. This course provides an essential solution by thoroughly examining the latest changes in the three key sets of auditing standards: AICPA Clarity Audit Standards (GAAS), Government Auditing Standards (GAS or Yellow Book), and Uniform Guidance (Single Audit). Participants will gain not only an understanding of the recent amendments but also the rationale behind these changes. The session covers significant updates across the AICPA standards, including SAS 134-140, modifications to the auditor’s report, and new amendments to various AU-C sections. For those involved in Single Audits, the course also delves into the latest compliance supplements and the implications of COVID-19 funding. This course is designed to equip auditors with the knowledge and insights necessary to effectively apply these standards, ensuring compliance and excellence in their auditing practices.
