The purpose of Part IV is to continue the assessment of control risk by determining the appropriate tests of controls and substantive tests of transactions.

a.Prepare an audit file listing the nine controls or download them from the textbook Web site. b.After each control, identify the transaction-related audit objective(s) that it partially or fully satisfies. c.Immediately below the control, list one audit procedure to test the control. Use the most reliable test of control evidence that you can think of. Write the audit procedure in good form. d.Immediately below the test of control, list one substantive test of transactions audit procedure to test whether the control failed to be effective. Use the most reliable...
