Audit Readiness Requirements for DoD Equipment (CLM048) Online Course

The new Audit Readiness Requirements for DoD Equipment course—Continuous Learning Module, CLM048—is now available through the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Continuous Learning Center. The course is available for all Department of Defense (DoD) personnel who play a crucial role in acquiring, accounting for, managing and controlling government equipment—both for the warfighter and for the American taxpayer.

The course provides the requirements and processes necessary for you to prepare for an audit—to enable you to state with confidence that you are ready for an independent review of your financial statements, that you can make the five required assertions, and that you have all necessary documents to support those assertions. The module also deals with the unique audit readiness requirements for DoD equipment. In a typical audit readiness environment, the Comptroller is usually responsible for ensuring the relative data is audit ready. However, because of the uniqueness of DoD, it is necessary for acquisition and logistics personnel to help ensure that DoD equipment data is audit ready.
