Each year Susan Riley, president of Bargon Construction, Inc., takes a three-week vacation to Hawaii and signs several checks to pay major bills during the period in which she is absent. Riley’s vaca- tion often occurs near the end of Bargon’s fiscal reporting period because it is a slack time for the construction business. Jack Morgan, head bookkeeper for the company, uses this practice to his advantage. He makes out a check to himself for the amount of a large vendor’s invoice and records it as a payment to the vendor for the purchase of supplies. He holds the check for several weeks to make sure the audi- tors will not examine the canceled check. Shortly after the first of the year, Morgan resubmits the invoice to Riley for payment approval

and records the check in the cash disbursements journal. At that point, he marks the invoice as paid and files it with all other paid invoices. Morgan has been following this practice successfully for several years and feels confident that he has developed a foolproof fraud.

a. What is the auditor’s responsibility for discovering this type of fraud?

b. What deficiencies exist in the client’s internal controls?

c. What substantive audit procedures are likely to uncover the fraud?
