I am new to auditing and trying to get through a BSA audit. I need some assistance. If anyone is an expert in this area, I would love to be able to pick their brain. I need help. BSA is such a difficult area to audit.

If you are new to BSA Auditing - I would engage an experienced firm and "tag a long" the first round.

Examiners are going to look for an experienced and even a certified auditor.

If the Bank does not want to go that route - go to the FFIEC BSA Manual - each section/chapter ends with an Examiner Guide. Start at #1 & work all the way down.

Hey Sarahk, here is a great website: examiner training relating to BSA,AML. http://www.stlouisfed.org/col/courses/tool/start/start.cfm?m=010&l=01&s=1.htm

It is free and informative!!!

And, as (not as)newbsa said you can always consult the BSA/AML Bible.

BTW, should you want ICQ's regarding BSA, please contact me. I have created ICQ's from the BSA/AML Manual that I would be happy to share with you.
