(a) Auditors shall adequately plan the work necessary to address the audit objectives, including a proposed timeline for each segment of the examination, the proposed property types that will be examined, and the proposed documentation that the person subject to examination may need to provide.

(b) Auditors shall obtain an understanding of the persons internal controls that are significant within the context of the examination objectives.

(i) Providing sufficient guidance and direction to personnel assigned to the examination to address the examination objectives and follow applicable requirements.
(ii) Being informed about significant problems encountered in the examination.
(iii) Reviewing the work performed.
(iv) Providing effective on-the-job training.
(v) The nature and extent of supervision may vary depending on a number of factors, including the experience of the personnel assigned to conduct the examination.
