...CHAPTER 3 SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT AND DOCUMENTATION TECHNIQUES SUGGESTED ANSWERS TO DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 3.1 Data Flows: merchandise, payment, cash and register tape Date Source: customer Processes: capture sales and payment, give cash and register tape to manager Storage: sales file (register tape), cash register 3.2 It is usually not sufficient to use just one documentation tool. Every tool documents a uniquely important aspect of a given information system. For example, system flowcharts are employed to understand physical system activities including inputs, outputs, and processing. In contrast, data flow diagrams provide a graphic picture of the logical flow of data within an organization. Each alternative is appropriate for a given aspect of the system. As a result, they work together to fully document the nature and function of the information system. 3.3 Similar design concepts include the following: • Both methods require an initial understanding of the system before actual documentation begins. This insures that the system is properly represented by the diagram. • Both measures require the designer to identify the elements of the system and to identify the names and relations associated with the elements. • Both methods encourage the designer to flowchart only the regular flows of information and not to be concerned with unique situations. • Both approaches require more......

Audit Chapter 8 Solutions Manual

...Solutions for Chapter 8 Tools to Gather Audit Evidence Review Questions: 8-1. The three main tools the auditor might use in gathering and evaluating audit evidence are: • Audit sampling • Generalized Audit Software • Analytical procedures 8-2. Non-sampling risk is the risk that the auditor makes an improper assessment of inherent and/or control risk or did not apply audit procedures carefully. It can be minimized through: (1) Good hiring, training and supervision practices; and (2) Careful and knowledgeable review of audit documentation and audit procedures. Sampling risk is the risk that the misstatement projections based on the sample results lead to the wrong conclusion about the population because of a non-representative sample. Sampling risk can be reduced by increasing the sample size – to the extreme of auditing the entire population therefore eliminating sampling risk altogether. 8-3. Factors to consider when choosing between statistical and nonstatistical sampling include: • Need to quantify and control sampling risks. • Additional cost of designing, selecting, and evaluating a statistical sample. • Availability of computer software to assist in designing, selecting, and/or evaluating the sample. • Ability of the audit staff to properly implement statistical sampling. 8-4. a. Tolerable deviation rate depends on the significance of the control procedure being......

The change would require comment in the auditor’s report in an explanatory paragraph. (b) If the company disposed of one of its two subsidiaries that had been included in its consolidated statements for prior years, no comment as to consistency needs to be made in the CPA’s audit report. The comparability of the financial statements has been affected by a business transaction, but there has been no change in any accounting principle employed or in the method of its application.

...Chapter 8 PROBLEM SET B Problem 8-1B (20 minutes) 1. Violates both applying technological control and effective segregation of duties. It is safe to assume that Latisha Tally has knowledge of employee passwords since she implemented the system of password protection companywide. It is a potentially insecure situation that Latisha processes payroll and can now probably change employee pay rates at will, or add a fictitious employee to the file. The company should hire an outside consultant to rework the password protection system so Latisha will not have the knowledge that she currently possesses. 2. Violates applying technological controls. The theater’s system needs to be backed up at least daily, not weekly. The theater needs to change the backup policy and make sure the backup copies are stored off premises. 3. Violates segregation of duties. The company needs to have three employees handle these functions instead of two. One employee should place purchase orders, one should receive merchandise, and the third should pay vendors. 4. Violates applying technological controls. The use of the check protector is a good internal control. However the company needs to keep the checks and check protector in a locked environment to prevent unauthorized use. 5. Violates segregation of duties. It is good internal control to separate duties for cash receipts and cash disbursements. Moreover, an employee independent of these two functions should......

...Chapter 8 Individual Income Tax Computation and Tax Credits SOLUTIONS MANUAL Discussion Questions 1. [LO 1] What is a tax bracket? What is the relationship between filing status and the width of the tax brackets in the tax rate schedule? A tax bracket is a range of taxable income that is taxed at a specified tax rate. Because only the income in the particular range is taxed at the specified rate, tax brackets are often referred to as marginal tax brackets or marginal tax rates. The level and width of the brackets depend on the taxpayer’s filing status. The tax rate schedules include seven tax rate brackets. The rates for these brackets are 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, 35%, and 39.6%. In general, the tax brackets are widest for Married filing jointly (for example, more income is taxed at 10%), followed by Head of household, Single, and then Married filing separately (the brackets for Married filing separately are exactly one-half the width of the brackets for Married filing jointly, and the width of the 10% and 15% brackets for Single and Married filing separately are the same). 2. [LO 1] In 2014, for a taxpayer with $50,000 of taxable income, without doing any actual computations, which filing status do you expect to provide the lowest tax liability? Which filing status provides the highest tax liability? For a taxpayer with $50,000, the married filing jointly filing status should provide the lowest tax liability in 2014 because the MFJ tax rate schedule......

...Solutions to Chapter 5 1. Explain the difference between connectionless unacknowledged service and connectionless acknowledged service. How do the protocols that provide these services differ? Solution: In an acknowledged connectionless network, reliable delivery can be achieved through the use of ACK and NAK transmissions. Such protocols are suited for communication over networks in which higher layers are sensitive to loss and the underlying network is inherently unreliable with a significant probability of loss or error. Unacknowledged networks provide simpler and faster communication for networks that are inherently reliable or provide service to higher layers that can tolerate information loss. 2. Explain the difference between connection-oriented acknowledged service and connectionless acknowledged service. How do the protocols that provide these services differ? Solution: The use of acknowledgments can provide reliable transfer over networks that are prone to error and loss. In connection oriented networks, every packet in a data flow travels on the same path through the network and the proper ordering of packets is guaranteed. In such networks, if a packet arrives out of order, the receiver immediately knows that a packet has been lost. In a connectionless network, the service needs a mechanism for dealing with unordered delivery of information. This is especially important for real-time or delay-sensitive traffic, which may require immediate retransmission and may......

...Solutions to the Review Questions at the End of Chapter 8 1. (a). A number of stylised features of financial data have been suggested at the start of Chapter 8 and in other places throughout the book: - Frequency: Stock market prices are measured every time there is a trade or somebody posts a new quote, so often the frequency of the data is very high - Non-stationarity: Financial data (asset prices) are covariance non-stationary; but if we assume that we are talking about returns from here on, then we can validly consider them to be stationary. - Linear Independence: They typically have little evidence of linear (autoregressive) dependence, especially at low frequency. - Non-normality: They are not normally distributed – they are fat-tailed. - Volatility pooling and asymmetries in volatility: The returns exhibit volatility clustering and leverage effects. Of these, we can allow for the non-stationarity within the linear (ARIMA) framework, and we can use whatever frequency of data we like to form the models, but we cannot hope to capture the other features using a linear model with Gaussian disturbances. (b) GARCH models are designed to capture the volatility clustering effects in the returns (GARCH(1,1) can model the dependence in the squared returns, or squared residuals), and they can also capture some of the unconditional leptokurtosis, so that even if the residuals of a linear model of the form given by the first part of the equation in part......

...Solutions to Questions 8-1 Activity-based costing differs from tradi-tional costing systems in a number of ways. In activity-based costing, nonmanufacturing as well as manufacturing costs may be assigned to products. And, some manufacturing costs—including the costs of idle capacity—may be excluded from prod-uct costs. An activity-based costing system typically includes a number of activity cost pools, each of which has its unique measure of activity. These measures of activity often differ from the allocation bases used in traditional costing systems. 8-2 When direct labor is used as an allocation base for overhead, it is implicitly assumed that overhead cost is directly proportional to direct labor. When cost systems were originally devel-oped in the 1800s, this assumption may have been reasonably accurate. However, direct labor has declined in importance over the years while overhead has been increasing. This suggests that there is no longer a direct link between the level of direct labor and overhead. Indeed, when a company automates, direct labor is replaced by machines; a decrease in direct labor is accompa-nied by an increase in overhead. This violates the assumption that overhead cost is directly propor-tional to direct labor. Overhead cost appears to be driven by factors such as product diversity and complexity as well as by volume, for which direct labor has served as a convenient measure. 8-3 Top managers provide leadership that is needed to properly motivate...

One of the first women to become a Fortune 500 CEO. She is characterized as a screaming, combative, ruthless taskmaster known for humiliating employees in front of their peers. Her simple motto: "You can't run a company efficiently with a 'bunch of babies.' If you don't like it, leave. This is not a prison." Advice to other senior managers, be tough. Wachner is known for being smart and a good manager--and one who rewards only performance. Her record at Warnaco has been nothing short of stellar. Since leading a leveraged......
