CASE 7.6 BUD CARRIKER, AUDIT SENIOR Synopsis Bud Carriker had a plan. After graduating from college with an accounting degree, Bud intended to spend several years in public accounting working as an independent auditor.

His eventual career objective was to become a controller or chief financial officer in one of those industries. During the first several years that Bud was employed on the audit staff of one of the major accounting firms, he requested an assignment to a bank or financial services audit engagement. Near the beginning of his fifth busy season, Bud finally got his wish. His firm unexpectedly acquired a new bank client. The office managing partner told Bud that he would be assigned to the engagement for two reasons: (1) Bud had requested such an assignment and (2) the high-risk nature of the engagement dictated that a “heavy” senior, such as Bud, be assigned to the job.

The owner’s discomfort stemmed from the fact that Bud was a minority.
