An auditor is a professional that accumulates and evaluates

evidence to report on the degree a company's assertions comply with

an established set of procedures or standards (criteria). Use of

the title certified public accountant (CPA) is regulated by state

law and individuals using this designation must be licensed in the

state they practice auditing. Each state has their own regulations

for becoming a CPA.

There are four primary types of auditors: certified public

accounting firms, government accountability office auditors (GAO),

internal auditors, and internal revenue agents.
