Audits of State and Local Governments (GASB 34 Edition)--Audit and Accounting Guide (No. 012662CPA10). If you have state or local government clients, they either are or soon will be affected by GASB Statement No. 34, Basic Financial Statements--and Management's Discussion and Analysis--for State and Local Governments, as amended--standards that could significantly change the way they report their financial information. The GASB 34 edition of the guide will help you to audit those financial statements. This new Audit Guide not only addresses the GASB standards for financial reporting, the financial reporting entity, various accounts in the financial position and activity statements, and budgetary reporting, but also provides guidance on planning, performing, evaluating the results of, and reporting on your audit, including new illustrative auditors' reports on those financial statements, based on "opinion units." The guide applies to all governmental entities, including those that have been or are covered by other AICPA Audit and Accounting Guides.
The guide is effective for audits of state and local governmental financial statements for the first fiscal period ending after June 15, 2003, in which the government does apply, or is required to apply, the GASB's new financial reporting standards, with earlier application encouraged. Additional information about GASB 34 can be found in The CPA Letter's public accounting and government member-segment supplements published this month (see page 2 for access instructions). Price: $42.40 member, $53 non-member.
Service Organizations: Applying SAS No. 70, as Amended--AICPA Audit Guide (No. 012772CPA10). Service organizations provide services ranging from performing a specific task under the direction of a company to replacing entire business units or functions of that company. Many companies use service organizations to accomplish tasks that affect the company's financial statements. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the use of service organizations. Because many of the service organizations' functions affect a company's financial statement, auditors auditing the company's financial statements may need information about those services, the related service organization's controls, and their effects on the company's financial statements. This Audit Guide is designed to provide guidance to auditors reporting on a service organization's controls. It also provides guidance to auditors of companies that use service organizations. Price: $42.40 member, $53 non-member.
