The first standard of field work requires that "the work is to be adequately planned and assistants, if any, are to be properly supervised." This Statement provides guidance to the independent auditor making an examination in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards on the considerations and procedures applicable to planning and supervision, including preparing an audit program, obtaining knowledge of the entity's business, and dealing with differences of opinion among firm personnel. Planning and supervision continue throughout the examination, and the related procedures frequently overlap.
