Updated Guidance for Performance Audits in the Public Sector – AASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on January 24-25, 2019, the AASB discussed issues relating to this project, including:

  1. the distinction in the guidance between “practitioner” and “legislative auditor”;
  2. adapting acceptance and continuance requirements for public sector circumstances;
  3. guidance for identifying relevant internal controls;
  4. considerations when using the work of experts and consultants; and
  5. options for addressing subsequent events. The Board will discuss, and expects to approve, an exposure draft of an Assurance and Related Services Guideline at its March 2019 meeting.
