Accordingly, workpapers may include audit planning documentation, work programs, analyses, memoranda, letters of confirmation and representation, abstracts of company documents and schedules or commentaries prepared or obtained by the independent certified public accountant in the course of the accountant's audit of the financial statements of a CCO and which support the accountant's opinion.
(2) A CCO that is required to file an audited financial report pursuant to OAR 410-141-5020 shall require the accountant to make available for review by the Authority, all workpapers prepared in the conduct of the accountant's audit and any communications related to the audit between the accountant and the CCO, at the offices of the CCO, at the Authority's offices or at any other reasonable place designated by the Authority. The CCO shall require that the accountant retain the audit workpapers and communications until the Authority has filed a report on examination covering the period of the audit but no longer than seven years from the date of the audit report.
(3) In the conduct of a periodic review by the Authority's examiners, the Authority may make and retain photocopies of pertinent audit workpapers. Any such review by the Authority's examiners is an investigation and all working papers and communications obtained during the course of such an investigation must be given the same confidentiality as other examination workpapers generated by the Authority.
