If you ask a member of the public what the purpose of an audit is, the answer will probably be "to detect fraud" as that is the public's expectation. Despite this perception, external auditors only detect three to five percent of all fraud incidences. Get pragmatic guidance on how to improve the chances of detecting fraud. Engage in discussion of where fraud is most likely to occur and how to conduct inquiries and direct the audit in the areas which are of greatest concern and are most likely to be abused by perpetrators.
