The Audit News Focus On Series is a new performance audit information product intended to help performance auditors save time and complete audit planning and examination work more rapidly.

The Series is designed to be useful for:

  • Audit managers with ongoing responsibilities for a specific topic/entity.

Each Focus On issue covers one broad topic that should be of interest to most performance auditors, whether they work at the provincial or the federal level.
