Audit of the Financial Information Strategy, 2007

Appendix B

Sample Details: Site Visits

A sample was selected with a computer assisted audit tool from the AMMIS database received from the LAC in February 2006. A random sample was used to verify the existence of assets recorded in AMMIS. The sample selected represented 1.51% of the total moveable capital assets at the National Capital Region as detailed below in Table B-1. To verify the completeness of assets recorded in AMMIS, a sample of assets was selected while site visits were conducted at the LAC premises. These assets were traced backed to the AMMIS to ensure that all moveable capital assets were properly recorded.
