Description

Description:
Generally accepted government auditing standards (GAGAS), also known as the Yellow Book, provide a framework for audit organizations and auditors that conduct audits of government entities, entities that receive government awards, and other entities that require a Yellow Book audit. The term "Yellow Book" comes from the original publication of GAGAS in 1972, which was wrapped in a bright yellow jacket. There have been several revisions of the Yellow Book throughout the years. The most current publication, and the focus of this course, is Government Auditing Standards: 2018 Revision. Course Three is designed to help you navigate the complexities of the standards by laying out the fieldwork and reporting standards for financial audits and attestation engagements.
