Course overview

Over the years auditors have experimented with a number of ways to analyze data in order to better evaluate performance or to more efficiently conduct audits. Analysts have developed methods for evaluating data which we believe are of a benefit to auditors. The techniques discussed in this course are derived from both of these sources. Analytical techniques that auditors, in the public and private sector, can use to identify and illustrate problems with performance, assess their causes, and identifysolutions with a focus on developing findings and making recommendation are presented in this course. The objective is to present the techniques, discuss their uses, illustrate their applications, and provide practice in applying them to public sector case study audit exercises.
