4th E practice guide : integrating environmental considerations in performance audit work / prepared by Adrienne Scott.: FA3-63/2015E-PDF

"The purpose of this guide is to help auditors with little or no environmental expertise to identify and assess environmental risks that could be associated with the programs and activities they audit. At the Office of the Auditor General of Canada (OAG), we audit the federal government and the governments of the northern territories. We examine significant issues and report what we find to Canada’s Parliament and the northern legislative assemblies. We are thus in a good position to inform parliamentarians and Canadians about whether responsible entities are considering the environmental consequences of their activities appropriately. This guide provides information to support the identification and assessment of environmental risks as part of the strategic audit planning process, and planning an individual performance audit"--Purpose, p. 1.
