A three-day workshop on Audit Planning started at PDC today for Bhutanese audit firms. It is aimed to provide participants with clear and common understanding of Audit Planning and subsequent audit processes. Participants will share knowledge and views of their audit approaches and discuss the international standards ISSAI-based audit planning adopted by RAA in order to achieve common audit approaches within the firms.
The opening session of the workshop was graced by the Hon’ble Auditor General where Dasho highlighted the importance of audit planning and measures taken to ensure proper planning in RAA. Dasho also stressed on auditing without fear, favor and prejudice; and highlighted on logistical arrangements initiated in RAA so as not to compromise ethics and integrity by having to depend on audited entities.
