Rayo Corporation: Completion of Systems and Programming Questionnaire.1 Mike Kess, a senior auditor for the regional accounting firm Sanders and McDonald, was assigned to audit the Rayo Corporation. He was to conduct a preliminary review of the general controls over systems and programming. He has already identified the current applications and the equipment used in the data processing system (Figure 14.9) and is about to start on system maintenance. Mike contacted Jim Stram, the manager of systems and programming in the EDP department. A summary of their conversation is presented below.
a. Keeping in mind that this is part of the preliminary phase of the review, are there any additional questions you would have asked of Jim if you had been in Mikeâ€™s place?
B. Make a list of weaknesses that you feel should be considered in the preliminary assessment of the internal control in this area.
