Auditing


The Institute reorganized and updated an AICPA audit and accounting guide, Government Auditing Standards and Circular A-133 Audits, for conforming changes as of May 1, 2004 ( www.aicpa.org/members/div/auditstd/ ). Its former title was Audits of States, Local Governments, and Not-for-Profit Organizations Receiving Federal Awards. Copies (product no. 012744JA) are available from the AICPA at 888-777-7077 or www.cpa2biz.com .

The PCAOB staff issued a second set of questions and answers on Auditing Standard no. 2, An Audit of Internal Control Over Financial Reporting Performed in Conjunction with an Audit of Financial Statements ( www.pcaobus.org/documents/staff_q_and_a/ ). The first was published in June 2004 ( www.pcaobus.org/qa_staff_internal_control.pdf ).
