36.       The auditor should evaluate whether to use the work performed by others in an engagement to report on whether a previously reported material weakness continues to exist.  To determine the extent to which the auditor may use the work of others to alter the nature, timing, or extent of the work the auditor otherwise would have performed, the auditor should apply paragraphs 109 through 115 and 117 through 125 of Auditing Standard No. 2.
