ICQ's, Checklists, and Forms OH MY!  

AICPA standards and GAGAS require the following:

A record of the auditors' work should be retained in the form of working papers.

4.35 The additional working paper standard for financial statement audits is:

Working papers should contain sufficient information to enable an experienced auditor having no previous connection with the audit to ascertain from them the evidence that supports the auditors' significant conclusions and judgments.

This page was developed to provide auditors from around the world the opportunity to share what they consider to be project standard electronic audit work papers.  These electronic forms or worksheets are organized based on the phases of the audit or the specific function under review. They are in Microsoft Word,  Excel, or Adobe PDF Format. According to an e-mail received from an AuditNet user: 

I think it would be kind of neat to see what others are doing and for new auditors to have a few forms to pick from instead of reinventing the wheel.

This is what AuditNet truly is all about; auditors sharing ideas that promote the concept of Auditors Sharing Knowledge for Progress!
