Case Study Situation

You are an audit manager for Alder Auditing Bureau, a firm that has recently gained two new audit clients of a similar size. Your audit staff have completed their preliminary investigations of the two clients. You are reviewing their notes which can be summarized as follows:

Client 1 – Feyaty-Al-Madinah

Feyaty-Al-Madinah is an old-fashioned family company which has been in business for over a thirty years and trades as wholesalers of fruit and vegetables. Its management structure is divided into five layers ranging from supervisor, deputy manager, manager, senior manager and director. The senior managers and directors have been with the company for many years. Each level of management has clear authority limits set down in the company manual, which also sets out detailed written procedures for every job. Management at all levels generally has an unforgiving attitude to errors and inefficiencies. Most of the systems are paper-based, although the accounting ledgers are maintained on a computer and there are rigid systems of authorisation before transactions can be processed. Staff turnover in clerical posts and at supervisor and deputy manager level is high.

Client 2 – Alkhalij Agency For Advertising

Alkhalij Agency for Advertising is a new company set up six months ago. It trades as a website design business and as an advertising agency. Alkhalij Agency for Advertising is run by two brothers who manage the business jointly. Alkhalij Agency for Advertising mostly employs creative people but it does have a small clerical staff to deal with billing and time recording. The approach to work is casual, spontaneous and rather uncontrolled. Error detection is not seen as a priority. The management’s view is that they will deal with errors and problems when they arise. Staff are happy and so staff turnover is low.


In your review of the control environment for each of these clients, what conclusions would you draw about the risk of error arising in the accounts? (3Mark)

Explain the Concept of Audit Sampling and types of Sampling Risk. ( 1 Mark)

3. What are the transactions and documents processed through the revenue process?(1 Mark)

Weekly 1 discussion 508 Anyone charged with a crime is entitled to

Weekly 1 discussion 508

Anyone charged with a crime is entitled to legal representation. Largely, this job falls to a public defender, either state or federal, who is generally overworked and unable to give the attention to the case that he or she should. Because of the caseload, many cases are pled that maybe should not be. But then there’s another side of the issue—public defenders that do not seem to care about their clients.

Take the case of Mychal Bell, a member of the Jena Six. The Jena Six were so named because their case occurred in Jena, Louisiana (in 2007). There had been a racially charged atmosphere at the school where the Jena Six and those involved with them attended. There were accusations back and forth, but the arrests of the six black youths, ages 17 and 18, followed a battery committed on a white boy which allegedly occurred after at least two nooses were found hanging from a tree frequented by white students the day after a black student sat under the tree with the principal’s permission. Tensions grew after the white students who allegedly hung the nooses were given what some considered light discipline involving in-school suspension. When matters escalated and an altercation ensued and a white male student was involved in a fight with several black male students, the black students were arrested.

Mychal Bell, age 17, was charged as an adult. The white prosecutor who handled the case charged Bell with aggravated battery—a charge that required the use of a deadly weapon. The prosecutor alleged that the sneakers Bell wore when he kicked the victim were the deadly weapons. At trial, Bell was represented by a public defender. Despite witnesses who would testify that Bell was not involved, Bell’s public defender urged Bell to take a plea. Bell refused. During trial, Bell’s public defender rested his case without calling a single witness or offering any evidence on Bell’s behalf. Even though the jury pool consisted of 50 venire, none was black. Bell’s public defender never challenged the venire. The jury found Bell guilty. Facing 22 years in prison, Bell secured a new set of attorneys privately hired on his behalf. Eventually, his case was resolved on time served on other unrelated charges

The question is, what made the difference in the case? Do you think most lawyers would have challenged an all-white jury in a jurisdiction that was 10 percent black? Do you think most lawyers would have put on a case for their client where there were willing witnesses to challenge the prosecution’s witnesses? What makes the difference? Where do ethics come into play? If lawyers are bound by their code of professional ethics, do you think the prosecutor and public defender abided by them here? What is the impact of such an occurrence on the defendant as well as on society viewing the situation? Should the judge viewing this situation step in? Would it be ethical to do so? Who are the stakeholders and what are their issues? Does this appear to be equal justice under law as promised by the U.S. Constitution?

This case drew national attention and captured the media for over a year while the case worked its way through the courts. For a full story see: Mangold, T. (2007). Racism goes on trial again in America’s deep south. The Observer, Retrieved from http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2007/may/20/usa.theobserver.[supanova_question]

Question 1 Descriptive statistics are used to summarize and describe the data

Question 1

Descriptive statistics are used to summarize and describe the data you have access to – be it data for the whole population of interest (such as everyone who attends a particular school), or data collected from a random sample of a larger population (such as a random sample of people who were patients at a particular hospital over a two-year period). Let’s consider the descriptive statistics in Table 1 (Visram, Smith, Connor, Greig & Scorer, 2018). The data was obtained from a sample of people who live in a particular city(Shildon), and the sample size is 233 (as indicated by the n=233 at the bottom of the table). Moreover, there are two different types of variables summarised in this table and these two types of variables need to, and have been, analyzed differently.

1.Name two continuous variables in this dataset and write down and explain in some detail two descriptive measures associated with these variables.

2.Explain why summarizing these continuous variables using both descriptive measures given in the table may be optimal for some, as one without the other does not fully describe the variable.

3.Are there any other statistics (other than measures of location and dispersion given in the table) that you may need to describe the data better? If so, please explain the usefulness of these other statistics.

Categorical variables, on the other hand, cannot be summarised using measures of central tendency or dispersion. Instead percentages (and often also frequencies) are used to show what percentage of the sample is in each category (or how many are in each category in the case of frequencies). For example, the descriptive statistics for the ‘Gender’ variable show that 65.7% of the sample described in Table 1 are women, while 34.3% are men.

4.Explain why categorical variables cannot be summarized using measures of location or dispersion. Name the other categorical variables from the output shown in Table 1, and provide some description to get a better understanding of the data available in the population of Shildon.

Question 2

Based on the essay titled “The Median Isn’t the Message” by Stephen Jay Gould, you are required to explain (in your own words) his relief that “the distribution was indeed, strongly right skewed, with a long tail (however small) that extended for several years above the eight month median”. Your explanation should consist of between 12 to 15 sentences.[supanova_question]
