CPAR GOV/NFP - Vol. 2020 - No. 1 - 03 - The 2018 Yellow Book - Revisions Effective June 30, 2020

Course Overview
The Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS), also known as the Yellow Book, provide a framework for conducting high quality audits. The Yellow Book is used by auditors of government entities, entities that receive government awards, and other audit organizations performing Yellow Book audits. One of the biggest changes that was made in the 2018 Yellow Book is the organization of the book itself. In this segment, Allen Fetterman, who lectures extensively for Kaplan Financial Education on not-for-profit accounting, auditing and governance issues, walks us through the main revisions of the 2018 Yellow Book.
