Archived Webinar: Yellow Book Update
An ALGA webinar held July 9, 2019
GAO issued the 2018 revision to Government Auditing Standards (Yellow Book) in July 2018. This is 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 includes 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 a local government auditor who is also a member of the Government Auditing Standards Advisory Council. Don’t miss this informative TWO-HOUR webinar! The session will include scheduled segments from the speakers and a live Q&A session.
