Event Description

Computer Assisted Audit Techniques (CAATs) allow you as an auditor to process great volumes of data. This may lead to the discovery of indications of fraud and other irregularities hidden in the jungle of numbers and spreadsheets or even help to identify benchmarks in value for money audits.

The European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law organizes this advanced seminar for public sector auditors from 12th to 13th June 2014 in Berlin to offer them the opportunity to consolidate and deepen their knowledge on the different evidence collection methods and identify the optimal procedure for each of the comprehensive audit missions.

  • How to best collect data systematically
  • What measures have to be taken when needed data is not available
  • How can you correctly evaluate sample findings

  • Information and Analysis, Audit Commission, United Kingdom
  • Central Audit Service, Ministry of Finance, the Netherlands
