Day 2: What’s Happening in Government Auditing

The professional standards around auditing governmental entities continues to evolve. This course will look at the changes happening at the AICPA. We’ll review the audit standards that have been issued related to the new auditor’s report, materiality, other information, communication, as well as standards to be issued in the near future including compliance reporting, estimates and audit evidence. We’ll then look at the activity of PEEC and the major changes in the areas of hosting, leases, information systems and government affiliates and the impact on independence. We’ll then provide a brief update on changes happening in the Uniform Guidance and Yellow Book including proposed changes to Single Audits. In the afternoon, we’ll switch gears and focus on common audit deficiencies for GAAS, GAGAS and Uniform Guidance audits. We will utilize actual MFCs from the State of New Mexico!
