Each number of the flow chart in Exhibit DC9-7 locates a control point in the labor processing system of your auditee,

Alouette Inc.
a. Make a list of the control points, and, for each point, describe the type or kind of internal control procedure that ought to be specified.
b. Assume that Exhibit DC9-7 is the system description in Alouette’s prior year’s audit file. During the current year, the company converted to an electronic security card system. Each employee is issued a security card with a magnetic stripe containing his or her identity code. At the start of the shift the employee swipes his or her security card to enter the factory floor. Using an internal clock, the scanner generates a start time entry in the system’s attendance detail records file. The employee then reports to the floor supervisor to be assigned to a job for his or her shift. The supervisor uses a terminal that displays a real-time list of checked-in employees, and enters the job number assignment beside the employee’s name. The job costing system automatically creates an open daily job transaction entry. At the end of the shift the employee swipes his or her card to exit the factory floor and the total shift time is entered to the open job transaction. The daily job transaction entry is then closed and a labor charge entry for the employee’s shift is generated in the job costing system and in the payroll file.
You have been assigned to assess controls for the current year audit. Update Exhibit DC9-7 to reflect the new employee attendance and job costing systems described above. Identify control points in the new systems, and indicate control procedures that should be used to prevent errors in payroll and jobcosting.
