Compliance auditing is a significant risk area for firms. We are now in the year where engagements will be selected for testing in the OMB mandated quality study. Additionally, the GAO issued its update of Government Auditing Standards in the summer of 2018. This course will discuss those changes as well as new questions and answers that have recently been included in the Uniform Guidance FAQ document, changes that will be made to the data collection form for 2019-2021 and changes that the OMB made to its method for updating the compliance supplement.
