Course Description Course Description

COVID-19 triggered immediate changes to business processes with the widespread movement of employees to “work-from-home” arrangements. The urgency and speed of the required changes resulted in temporary workarounds as processes designed for office environments were extended to a remote, home-based workforce. Organizations now need to consider their internal controls to determine whether changes are needed to adapt to the new business environment. This session provides an opportunity to consider how operations are currently conducted and to evaluate whether key controls remain in place and are effective. The potential impact of COVID-19 on the Single Audit is also considered.

The course is offered in a single 2-hour session.
