President's Letter

David Price, Chapter PresidentHappy Thanksgiving from the Dallas Chapter of The IIA!

Please join us on November 19th for our monthly meeting at the CityPlace Conference Center. The economy has provided nearly all of us with trying times this year. The November meeting’s mission is to provide you with information on the economic outlook for the remainder of 2002 and 2003. Experts from the Dallas Chamber of Commerce, the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank and the Dallas County District Attorney's Office will be “on-hand” to present and predict. Whether you are trying to anticipate the impact of the business cycle on your audit plan, hiring staff, planning for retirement, or plotting your investment strategy, you will benefit from this session. As usual, the pre meeting starts at 10:30. The lunch meeting check-in begins at 11:30. …and the post meeting starts at 1:30. Please plan to attend all three sessions to maximize your CPE credits.

Dr. Ray Clay (University of North Texas) has some outstanding internship candidates for this summer. If you are interested in hiring an internal audit intern, please contact Ray at 940-565-3093.

If you are in the market for an internal audit position, please review our website on a regular basis. There have been some outstanding positions listed in recent months. (http://dallasiia.org/Employ.htm)

I sincerely hope each of you has an enjoyable holiday. In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, I will end my column by saying “thanks” to several members of this chapter:

  • Corinne Bryan, District Representative - Thanks for your consistent “guiding light.” You keep us on track with CAP reporting and provide great leadership and advice.
  • Al Bazis, Board of Governors - Most do not know of your multi-year efforts made on behalf of the students in the University of North Texas Internal Audit program. Thanks!
  • Chapter members taking the CIA exam - The CIA exam dates are November 20th and 21st. Thank you for taking on the challenge of certification. Passing will help you “stand out” in our profession. Good luck.
  • Chapter Volunteers (Committee Members, Chairpersons, Officers, and Board Of Governors) - We would not have a chapter if it were not for your leadership and vision. (Remember our Board Meeting is on November 19th at CityPlace starting at 8:30 a.m.)

If you would like to become more active in the Dallas Chapter, please give me a call at 972-431-5947.

National Economy Update

Evan F. Koenig Senior Economist and Vice President, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

logo_dalfrb.jpg (15546 bytes)During the latter part of the 10-year U.S. economic expansion that ended in 2001, many economists and policymakers recognized the emergence of a New Economy characterized by a higher sustained level of productivity growth brought on by the adoption of new information technologies. Rapid economic growth combined with low inflation and low unemployment led some to assert that the business cycle was dead. In November 2001, these claims were put to rest when an official declaration was made that U.S. economic activity had slipped into recession in March 2001. In his talk, I demonstrate that the 2001 recession was mild relative to other post-World War II downturns, and argue that this mildness reflects a broader trend toward a more flexible and resilient U.S. economy. Like the New-Economy productivity acceleration, the trend toward greater economic stability would not have been possible without the productive implementation of technologies that provide decision-makers with real-time access to critical information. So, the New Economy hasn't killed the business cycle, but the cycle is weaker as a result of the innovations responsible for the New Economy.

Evan F. Koenig is a senior economist and vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. In this position, he oversees macroeconomic research and analysis in the Research Department, briefs the president and directors of the Bank on current macroeconomic conditions and writes articles for Bank publications and scholarly journals.

In his research, Koenig seeks to characterize, predict and explain movements in prices, output and employment, particularly as these movements are affected by monetary policy. His articles have appeared in such publications as The Quarterly Journal of Economics, The Journal of Public Economics, The National Tax Journal, and the Dallas Fed's Economic and Financial Review.

Koenig holds bachelor's degrees (with honors) in mathematics and economics from the University of Wisconsin and a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University. He joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas in 1988, after teaching at the University of Washington, in Seattle. He is currently an adjunct professor of economics at Southern Methodist University.


Pre-Meeting 10:30am

He also serves as director of the Institute of Applied Economics, which offers masters degree programs in economic development.

He has taught at several universities including the University of Texas at Dallas, and Southern Methodist University. He has worked for several U.S. government agencies including the President’s Commission on School Finance, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Federal Trade Commission.

New Book Written by Dallas IIA Chapter Member

Mark NigriniMark Nigrini Ph.D., a Dallas IIA Chapter member since 1997, and former SMU faculty member, has recently completed a new book titled “Using Microsoft Access for Data Analysis and Interrogation.” The book is aimed at internal auditors and focuses on finding anomalies in data sets. These anomalies will usually be evidenced by abnormal duplications, or extreme ratios between related records. The anomalies could indicate possible fraud, potential errors, outliers, biases in the data (numbers skewed to a value or range of values), processing inefficiencies, or a change in the composition of the numbers between time periods for continuous monitoring.

The first three chapters discuss data analysis theory (including Benford’s Law), practical data analysis issues for auditors, and the basics of data analysis using Access. Chapter 4 gives an overview of data analysis in Access. Chapters 5 to 11 discuss data interrogation tests for auditors with tips and hints for auditors and how to do the tests in Access (demonstrated with detailed screen shots). Chapters 12 and 13 cover the tests included in specialized data analysis packages including audit sampling, histogram, gaps, duplicates, and aging. Chapter 14 is a review and discussion chapter.

Nigrini shows that Microsoft Access is an excellent data analysis tool. The main features in Microsoft Access supporting data analysis through queries are:

  • The ability to create a query using the wizards, design view, or SQL view
  • The ability to query tables, prior queries, or both tables and queries
  • The ability to use SQL view to modify a query created in Design view
  • Performance Analyzer (Tools, Analyze, Performance) to assist in making queries more efficient
  • The ability to format the output of the query
  • The ability to sort and resort query results without creating multiple dynasets along the way
  • Built in functions for calculated fields including Iif (Immediate If) function and full set of operators such as less than or greater than and also And, Or, and Not
  • Tolerance of empty (null) fields
  • The ability to read all the main file formats with its ODBC capabilities.
  • The ability to easily join tables allowing queries that are based on conditions in both tables.
  • The ability to seamlessly export results to Excel for further analysis or neat presentation
  • Excellent support available on the Microsoft website

The book includes two test data sets that allow users to duplicate the screen shots, and Excel templates that produce graphs that match the format of the graphs in the book. More details can be found at:
