Proposed changes to the GAO Gov't. Audit Standards (the "yellow book.") These changes propose revision throughout the entire set of standards except for the 2nd general standard, independence, which is being revised separately. These revisions fall into 3 categories: GAGAS framework, consistent application of the standards where applicable to the various types of audits, and strengthening or streamlining the standards. Chapters: types of gov't. audits and attestation engagements (AE); general standards; field work standards, and reporting standards for financial audits and performance audits; and general, field work, and reporting standards for AE.
