Published: May 29, 2009. Publicly Released: May 29, 2009.
This letter provides the U.S. Government Accountability Office's (GAO) comments on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Auditing Standards Board's (ASB) proposed Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) on audit sampling. Generally, we support the proposed statement and agree that in most cases the standard appropriately discusses important considerations related to auditor use of audit sampling.
