Modern day auditing is energetic and electrifying, adding real value to the organisation and operating at the highest levels. The reputation of many audit functions is soaring – it is increasingly recognised as a catalyst for change and a business partner. As a consequence of this, internal auditors have to have the full range of knowledge and skills to ensure that they can carry out their function at world class levels.

Generally Accepted Auditing Standards, or GAAS are sets of standards against which the quality of audits are performed and may be judged. Several organizations have developed such sets of principles, which vary by territory. In the United States, the standards are promulgated by the Auditing Standards Board, a division of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
