AuditNet® Audit-library::Monographsaudit-guides


Monographs and Guides The monograph series grew out of my desire to establish an online electronic communication network for auditors. Before online services, bulletin boards and the Internet many auditors were operating without the benefits of peer collaboration and information sharing on a major scale. The Internet, founded on the principle of sharing and communication, changed the interaction model between auditors. Auditors can now post messages in online discussion forums, upload and download audit work programs, checklists, surveys, questionnaires and other audit related material in warp speed. Small one-person audit shops can now leverage the Internet and communicate with others and feel like they are not paddling upstream with one oar when it comes to having access to audit resources. My vision of an online information communication network for auditors became a reality with AuditNet® as the foundation.
The AuditNet® Monograph Series or AMS provides auditors with guidance on different aspects of the audit process and other relevant topics to help them do their jobs. New auditors will seek these guides to learn some basics of auditing while experienced auditors will use them as a review. Each guide focuses on a specific subject. The guides are available to subscribers in the audit templates area. If you are a subscriber and cannot find any of the following please send an email to We are constantly adding new titles to this list.
