  • Identify the substantial changes to methods and assumptions used to determine actuarial information.
  • Recall how net pension liability (asset), pension expense, and deferred outflows of resources and deferred inflows of resources related to pensions are calculated and derived.
  • Recognize the role of management specialists, auditor specialists, and service organizations, and the related audit implications.
  • Distinguish the responsibilities of plan management, the plan’s auditor, employer management, and the employer’s auditor in the context of audits of government employers.
