September 18, 2014
1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m.

IIA Event Description
​The United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) and The IIA each maintain a set of standards related to professional auditing. The two organizations work together to develop complementary standards that can be used independently or in tandem to perform government audits.
​The overarching goal of this webinar is to focus on The IIA’s IPPF, or Red Book, and the GAO Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS), or Yellow Book, to achieve the following objectives:
  • Identify similar principles and key differences between the organizations’ standards.
  • Provide suggestions for how to proceed if electing to (or required to) comply with the standards of both organizations.
