Ethics apply when rules end.
Occasionally, you will run into situations where the mandatory requirements in the audit standards won’t help you decide what to do. In these situations, how do you reach the government auditor’s ideals of public service, accountability, and transparency?
And that is why the GAO’s Yellow Book also prescribes 5 ethical principles to help you know what to do when confronted with what feels like a no-win situation. In this short session, consider real-life government audit dilemmas and apply the GAO’s guidance regarding objectivity, independence, and integrity to guide you to make your highest and best choice for yourself, your team, your auditee, and the public that you serve.
This 2-hour session will satisfy the IIA’s ethics CPE requirements but will not satisfy the ethics CPE requirements for CPAs (how’s that for transparency?).
Learning objectives include:
- Identify when your auditor credibility is threatened
- Evaluate ways to safeguard your auditor independence
- Apply the GAO’s ethics principles to real-life scenarios
- Identify how a government auditor’s goals differ from a corporate auditor’s goals
