Beth Schubert

Lakewood, CO

U.S. Department of the Interior employee Beth Schubert is the Office of Inspector General’s program coordinator for its Insular Areas Capacity Building Program. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) serves as the comptroller in the United States insular areas of Guam, CNMI, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa, and has audit responsibilities in the Federated States of Micronesia, The Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau. Beth is the first full time coordinator for the program.

Beth is responsible for all OIG training and technical assistance in the insular islands and has launched a U.S. based training in OIG’s Colorado location, which is now in its fifth year. The training is available to Offices of the Public Auditor employees involved in audits and evaluations. Upon completion of this year’s program, 51 employees will have been trained onsite in Colorado, as well as numerous others through island-specific trainings during the past few years.

Beth started her federal career as an intern with the Department of the Interior in 2003, joining the OIG’s Colorado office in 2008. In 2010, she accepted a 2-year assignment located in Honolulu, and has worked in the islands on and off since 2010. In 2012, she became a supervisor, overseeing performance audits. During that time, she continued to work with the insular areas’ offices and has had the pleasure to visit the beautiful islands of American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Palau, Pohnpei, Kosrae, Yap, and now CNMI.

Beth holds a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Colorado, as well as master’s degree policy management from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Her bachelor’s degree is in business administration with a specialization in finance from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She is a certified fraud examiner.

Explaining Audit Results to Policy-makers

In this session, participants will learn theories and practice tools to present audit and finance results to policy-makers.  They are busy, they have many tasks, and we can explain complex topics to them clearly.  From Greek theories on communication to presenting with clear information and context, we'll cover time-tested tools that will help you get to the basic message sooner and inform governing groups about the important results of our audit and finance work.

Love Triangle - Audit Risk, Internal Control, and Sampling

Audit risk, internal control, and sampling are key components to any audit. It is important not only to understand each of those aspects, but also to understand how they relate to each other. We will examine the various components of audit risk and internal control and how those may impact sampling.

Audit organizations world wide have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Even if you are not conducting a COVID-19 specific audit, auditors conducting audit work during the pandemic, or whose scope of work falls within the period of the pandemic, may face obstacles that can increase their audit risk including the unavailability of key staff, the inability to access key information, and the inability to follow established controls.
