Abstract:

Operational auditing is briefly described through an analysis of its development, nature, and the relationship between the authors qualifications and the purpose of an operational audit. Standards developed by the General Accounting Office for an operational audit are examined as a basis for comparison with current audit programs in Coast Guard Non-appropriated Fund Activities NAFA. The need for an operational auditing program in Coast Guard NAFA is established based on the level of operations of large Coast Guard NAFAs. A model for an operational audit program in Coast Guard NAFA is developed along with proposed guidelines and considerations. Considerations in implementing the proposed operational audit program are discussed as well as the authors recommendations for implementing an operational audit program in Coast Guard NAFA. The author concludes that there is a need for an operational audit program in Coast Guard NAFA and that implementation of the developed operational audit model would improve the current Coast Guard NAFA internal audit program.
