When is There Enough Control?

When is There Enough Conrtol? When standards require control, both management and auditors need to know the elements that must exist for there to be control.

In the absence of specific guidance in performance standards (required procedures, records, or schedules) it is essential that auditors and management know when controls are adequate.
