applications to safeguard assets, ensure accuracy of data, and promote
operational efficiency.  They may interview workers and examine records to
gather data by following an audit plan and using the computer.  They analyze
data gathered to evaluate effectiveness of controls and determine accuracy of
reports and efficiency and security of operations.  They devise, write, and
test computer programs necessary to obtain information needed for audit.  They
devise controls for new or modified computer applications to prevent
