Managing the financial risk of a multi-million dollar capital investment is not only prudent but necessary to protect an institution’s capital investment. 

This session will teach you about organization and construction controls assessment, testing transactions, verifying compliance and addressing fundamental construction project audit questions, such as:

  • What transactions need to be tested?
  • Are there costs that do not need to be tested?
  • When should you do a 100 percent sample?
  • What factors drive testing populations and sample sizes? 

With an understanding of testing established, attendees will learn how to document the observations, list the preliminary findings and understand the reporting process. The workshop will conclude with a discussion about drafting and presenting an audit report, including building consensus around the findings, setting a positive tone in the report and writing for the target audience.
