WSLGAA regularly coordinates trainings and seminars designed to promote the sharing of knowledge among local government auditors and to assist in meeting Government Auditing Standards Continuing Education requirements.
In February 2017, King County Demographer Chandler Felt presented 40 years of economic and demographic trends in Washington and King County. For a copy of his presentation follow this link:
In April, we brought you Minh Dan Voung, Senior Management Auditor with the City of Portland Audit Services Division who discussed Maps and Geographic Analysis for Auditing. Minh Dan described techniques for using maps in auditing, demonstrated how maps can guide audit questions and fieldwork, and pointed out common pitfalls in mapping data. Follow this link for a copy of his presentation.
This summer we plan to discuss how audit shops approach different areas of the Yellow Book.

|After the Audit: The Trials and Triumphs of Recommendation Follow Up
After the audit report is published, there is still work to be done! Recommendation follow up is an important avenue for auditors to impact.
Please join us on Tuesday, July 11th for an hour-long panel discussion of recommendation follow-up techniques from different audit offices. We will cover the benefits and challenges of recommendation follow up, different ways communicate the results of follow up work, and ways to change and facilitate the recommendation follow up process. You will be inspired on ways to improve recommendation follow up and increase audit impact in your audit office.
