Quick Response Auditing (AUDT8011)

Quick Response Auditing

Quick Response Auditing


Urgent questions and concerns require quick audit response while maintaining quality, focusing on user needs, and conforming to the Government Auditing Standards. Determine when it is appropriate and how to offer clients alternatives to classic “full scope” audit coverage, and how to establish an auditor-client relationship conducive to quick delivery of products. Learn how to tailor audit objectives, approaches and products to better meet immediate client needs. Drawing on multiple case studies, learn to write focused objectives with limited scope to facilitate quick field work, timely reporting, and meaningful results to satisfy the client or stakeholder needs.

Who Should Attend?

Experienced auditors, including supervisors, team leaders and managers.
