GAO issued the 2018 revision to Government Auditing Standards (Yellow Book) on July 17, the first major change to these standards since 2011. The revision includes a modernized version of the standards that considers developments in the accounting and auditing professions. The changes are intended to reinforce the principles of transparency and accountability and provide the framework for high-quality government audits. The revision is expected to include changes in the areas of auditor competence, continuing professional education, internal control, quality control and external peer review.
This webinar will cover the major changes in the standards. In addition, significant implementation issues will be discussed from the views of two members – a state auditor and a local government auditor – of the Government Auditing Standards Advisory Council.
