​As a result of its Clarity Project, the Auditing Standards Board (ASB) has issued Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 128, Using the Work of Internal Auditors, in February 2014 to:
  • supersede SAS No. 65, The Auditor's Consideration of the Internal Audit Function in an Audit of Financial Statements (AICPA, Professional Standards, AU sec. 322 and AU-C sec. 610), and amend:
    • SAS No. 122, Statements on Auditing Standards: Clarification and Recodification, section 315, Understanding the Entity and Its Environment and Assessing the Risks of Material Misstatement (AICPA, Professional Standards, AU-C sec. 315);
    • Various other sections in SAS No. 122 (AICPA, Professional Standards, AU-C secs. 200, 220, 230, 240, 260, 265, 300, 402, 500, 550, and 600); and Statement on Quality Control Standards No. 8, A Firm’s System of Quality Control (Redrafted) (AICPA, Professional Standards, QC sec. 10).
SAS No. 128 addresses the external auditor’s responsibilities when using the work of internal auditors if it includes (a) using the work of the internal audit function in obtaining audit evidence and (b) using internal auditors to provide direct assistance under the direction, supervision, and review of the external auditor.
SAS No. 128 is effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2014.
