you have reviewed the case study, write a minimum of 600 words in length defending your responses to the following
 Do you think this was a financial audit, a project audit, or a management audit? Why?
 Was the purpose of the audit to exert cybernetic control, go/no-go control, or postproject control? Explain?
 Given the comments in the case, do you surmise that the reason for the audit was to improve future projects or to
ascertain the reasons for not meeting the project’s goals, and if the latter, its direct goals or ancillary goals?
 Do you think the GAO was the best choice for an audit team? Would it have the trust of the project personnel?
 Given the minimal elements of a project audit present in Section 12.2, which element(s) would have been primary
to the audit team? Why? Which section would have contained the “underlying problems” reported in the case?
Your assignment must:
 Be a minimum of 600 words in length.
 Be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations
and references must follow APA format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
