Understanding the client and its governance
Ajax Inc. is a public company and a new client of Hawthorne Partners, a medium-sized audit firm. Jeffrey Rush is the engagement partner on the audit and has asked the members of the audit team to begin the process of gaining an understanding of the client, in accordance with AS 2110.

Jeffrey will hold discussions with members of the audit committee and will discuss a wide range of issues. He has a meeting arranged for next week with the four members of the audit committee, including the chair of the committee, Stella South, who, like the other members of the audit committee, is an independent director.
