M1OEFA — AUDITING AND ASSURANCE CASE STUDY — OBAID, LIU AND ZHANG (OM PM Due Date: 26th March 2018 All deliveries of items purchase are directed to the goods received bay, where a three part compu... ter input document — Good Received Note (GRN) is completed, detailing supplier, item delivered and number of units purchased. This is used as a computer input document to update the inventory recording system, and is eventually filed in the Purchasing Director's office. Any documentation that is received with a delivery is kept in the goods received bay for six months and is then destroyed. The second copy of the GRN is passed on to the invoice section showing that the inventory has been received intact. The third copy is filed in the goods received bay. The invoice, on receipt, is sent to the office junior clerk in the invoice section, where it is matched with the GRN. If the delivery details agree to the invoice details, the invoice is stamped "approved", and the GRN is destroyed. The office junior files the approved invoices until the end of the week in the top drawer of his desk and then passes them onto the accounts clerk. If an invoice can't be matched to a GRN, the junior clerk checks against the computer records to ensure that an order has been generated by the computer. If this is the case, then the invoice is authorised in the normal way. The invoices are listed, totalled, posted to the purchase ledger and filed in supplier order by the accounts clerk. The invoice list is used as a basis for raising cheques for the eventual payment of suppliers.
