Professional Standards Manual

Professional Standards Manual   version 3.4

I am pleased to introduce the updated Professional Standards Manual (PSM) for the Vermont State Auditor’s Office. This version of the PSM includes streamlined audit processes that are designed to lead to more efficient engagements without compromising our commitment to following generally accepted government auditing standards.

As auditors we hold others to high performance standards and can expect no less from ourselves. This document sets the bar high and I know that the individuals in my office are committed to meeting this standard.

I would like to express my thanks to the team of professionals who revised this manual to reflect today’s standards and the auditing goals of this Office. It provides a solid foundation for services that will truly help the State of Vermont and its citizens.
