“PCAOB Audit Standard No. 5 (AS5) paragraph 37 and Statement on Auditing Standard Section 319 (AU 319) paragraph 75 suggest that management, business process owners, and auditors prepare and analyze systems documentation to understand the flow of transactions through a process and to identify and assess the effectiveness of the design of internal controls. However, organizations, internal audit departments, and public accounting firms have developed their own methods for documenting systems. Therefore, I am not going to learn to prepare systems documentation until I know exactly what technique I will need to use in my job.” Do you agree? Discuss fully.
