Title: Accountability for the Detection of Fraud
Authors: Lee, James
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: The present objective of an audit, "to determine whether financial statements fairly present the financial position of a company in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)" is insufficient to satisfy the expectations held by users of audited financial statements. Public opinion, litigations, court rulings and the Security Exchange Commis­ sion have demanded increased responsibility for auditors. To restore public confidence, the accounting profession must accept its responsibility and restate the objective of an audit to include the "active" search for fraud.
