Statements of Position

Management, audit committees, and others repsonsible for internal control in an entity have indicated that they have difficulty understanding the auditor's report on material weaknesses in internal control identified in a financial statement audit.

This proposed statement on auditing statnadards would clarify report language and replace the concept ...
