The correct answer to this question is D, All of the above. COSO is an abbreviation for the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations. The purpose of this committee is to ensure that fraud is not occurring in these organizations. They have auditors, and those that perform the audits check specific areas of the organization.

A, B, and C are all correct answers because they are all checked by the auditors. Risk Assessment, Monitoring, and the Control Environment are all important to check, to solve any issues, and ensure that everything is working properly. If not, plans are put in place to fix any issues occurring.

Large companies usually have a form of auditing for their own company. This is done as part of their accounting department to make sure that everything financially has been done correctly as far as having paperwork to confirm the expenses and money that they have used, spent or received. The accountant is usually not doing the auditing.

Instead, they are part of the auditing by showing the auditor and the auditing staff all of their paperwork. Many may use the COSO framework. This stands for the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations. It oversees the committees belonging to accounting and auditing. They do a wide range of actions to make sure everything is running smoothly including risk assessment, monitoring and control environment, to name a few.
