Financial Audit Manual:
Update to Part II--Tools
GAO-03-466G: Published: Apr 1, 2003. Publicly Released: Apr 1, 2003.
In July 2001, the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) and the President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE) issued the GAO/PCIE Financial Audit Manual (FAM). The FAM provides guidance for financial audits conducted by the Inspector General community, GAO, and their contractors. The FAM is a key part in enhancing accountability over taxpayer-provided resources. GAO and the PCIE are committed to keeping the FAM current and intend to prepare updates as needed. With this goal in mind, a GAO/PCIE task force prepared this update to volume II of the FAM, which provides tools to assist the auditor in complying with audit standards .
