It’s audit time! Do your employees know what to do? You’re not alone if they don’t. There are books and newsletters and Web sites to tell your auditor what to do, but until now, nothing for the poor “auditee.” That’s about to change. This article, the first in a series, is designed to help SAP project managers, administrators, and users to understand the typical SAP-related audit requirements and to ready these individuals for their next SAP-related audit. You will find information about the primary categories of an SAP audit, as well as specific tips on the General Computer Controls (GCC) audit. No one likes an audit, but it’s a lot easier if you know what to expect.
