AuditNet

JIM KAPLAN, the Webmaster for AuditNet, is the Internal Auditor for Fairfax County Public Schools, the 12th largest school district in the United States. He has a Master of Science in Accounting from The American University in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) the National Association of Local Government Auditors (NALGA) and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. From 1989 to 1995 as a contributing editor for The Internal Auditor, the professional journal of the IIA, his column Computers and Auditing (formerly PC Exchange) covered how auditors used computers. His articles have appeared in the Internet Bulletin for CPA's and Internal Auditing Alert. He is the author of The Auditor's Guide to Internet Resources 2nd Edition, published by the Institute of Internal Auditors, Inc.

Mr. Kaplan developed an interest in electronic communications for audit professionals in the early 90's through the use of bulletin boards and online commercial information services such as America Online and CompuServe. His conceptual model of AuditNet, an electronic information network for auditors, and his articles on electronic resources for auditors raised professional auditor awareness of using the Internet for audit productivity. As the founder and principal of AuditNet, he developed a home page on the World Wide Web that links auditors around the world with audit related resources. The AuditNet Web site (www.auditnet.org) is considered the primary electronic resource for internal auditors around the world searching for audit-related information. To promote the concept of AuditNet, Jim speaks frequently at accounting and auditing conferences. As a writer, journalist, educator, lecturer, and dedicated local government auditor, Jim Kaplan has promoted and encouraged the use of technology and the Internet for audit productivity.
