|ETHICAL PRACTICES OF THE AUDITING PROFESSION|
|Written by LUMINITA IONESCU|
ABSTRACT. Ashbaugh notes that audit standards require auditors to conduct audits being independent in mental attitude from their clients. Curtis explores the impact of mood on individuals’ ethical decision-making processes through the Graham model of Principled Organizational Dissent. As Carmichael et al. put it, ethical audit determines the internal and external consistency of a company’s values base. Coram et al. find that organizations with an internal audit function are more likely than those without such a function to detect and self-report fraud.
