Articles

While the independence of external auditors is required for all types of entities, it is especially important in the public sector where accountability and transparency are at their highest levels. These articles, published in Government Finance Review magazine, by Rehmann's Director of Government Audit Quality, Stephen W. Blann, address the unique issues surrounding auditor independence in the public sector, and provide practical tips on how to enhance both the real and perceived objectivity of governmental audits.
