Chapter 06 - Internal Control in a Financial Statement Audit Chapter 6 provides detailed coverage of the auditor’s assessment of internal control. We normally spend a substantial amount of time with the material contained in this chapter focusing on the basic concepts that apply to the audit of internal control and how the auditor’s consideration of internal control impacts the audit. Additionally the students need to have a good grasp of the COSO framework covered in this chapter. [LO 1] Introduction We begin our discussion of internal control by pointing out why internal control is important to both management and the auditors. In discussing management's perspective, we focus on the fact that management needs reliable information systems in order to make sound business decisions and to meet their stewardship responsibilities of safeguarding assets.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
