CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

Claim 1. A computer-implemented method for distributing content pursuant to an audit-based process, comprising:

receiving annotated documents containing industry-specific content authored by experts in the field of audit-based processes;

decomposing the annotated documents into individual content elements for inclusion in a content library database;

distributing related collections of said content elements via content packages;

merging said content elements into an end user's content library database; and

using a computer to generate a dynamic workpaper from the individual content elements in the content library database, in accordance with at least one predetermined rule, wherein the generated workpaper is also dynamically updated in response to (i) changes to user-supplied data or (ii) receipt of subsequent versions of the associated content elements.

Claim 2. The computer-implemented method of claim 1 , wherein the generated dynamic workpaper comprises: (i) text; (ii) a chart; (iii) a table; (iv) a graphic image; or (v) combinations thereof.

Claim 3. The computer-implemented method of claim 1 , wherein the generated dynamic workpaper is dynamically updated to reflect new or amended predetermined rules.

Claim 4. The computer-implemented method of claim 1 , further comprising the step of posing questions to a user wherein the user provides answers that are used generate the generated dynamic workpaper.

Claim 5. The computer-implemented method of claim 1 , wherein edits made to a generated workpaper are used to dynamically update other sections of the generated workpaper.

Claim 6. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein the generated dynamic workpaper provides drilldown functionality for enabling a user to view a source workpaper for a specified data value that has flowed into the generated dynamic workpaper.

Claim 7. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein the generated workpaper enables tip functionality to provide a user with additional guidance based on the status and data associated with the generated workpaper.

Claim 8. The computer-implemented method of claim 7, wherein the tip functionality is triggered by selecting an icon embedded within the generated workpaper to provide information related to one or more topics chosen from a group consisting of: (i) practice points; (ii) related workpapers; (iii) resources; (iv) examples; (v) user assistance; and (vi) combinations thereof.

Claim 9. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein the generated workpaper includes functionality enabling a user to access a web-based research system by selecting a hyperlink embedded within either the generated workpaper or the related tips.

Claim 10. A computer system for distributing content pursuant to an audit-based process, comprising:

a memory;

a communication device operatively coupled to the memory to receive annotated documents containing industry-specific content authored by experts in the field of audit-based processes; and

at least one processor, operatively coupled to the communications device for decomposing the annotated documents into individual content elements for inclusion in a content library database, distributing related collections of said content elements via content packages, and merging said content elements into an end user's content library database,

wherein the at least one processor generates a dynamic workpaper from the individual content elements in the content library database, in accordance with at least one predetermined rule, wherein the generated workpaper is also dynamically updated in response to (i) changes to user-supplied data or (ii) receipt of subsequent versions of the associated content elements.

Claim 11. The computer system of claim 10, wherein the at least one processor is configured to dynamically update the generated dynamic workpaper to reflect new or amended predetermined rules.

Claim 12. The computer system of claim 10, wherein the generated dynamic workpaper comprises: (i) text; (ii) a chart; (iii) a table; (iv) a graphic image; or (v) combinations thereof.

Claim 13. The computer system of claim 10, wherein the at least one processor is configured to provide drilldown functionality for enabling a user to view a source workpaper for a specified data value that has flowed into the generated dynamic workpaper.

Claim 14. The computer system of claim 10, wherein the at least one processor is configured to enable tip functionality to provide a user with additional guidance based on the status and data associated with the generated workpaper

Claim 15. The computer system of claim 14, wherein the tip functionality is triggered by selecting an icon embedded within the generated workpaper to provide information related to one or more topics chosen from a group consisting of: (i) practice points; (ii) related workpapers; (iii) resources; (iv) examples; (v) user assistance; and (vi) combinations thereof.

Claim 16. The computer system of claim 10, wherein the at least one processor is configured to pose questions to a user wherein the user provides answers that are used generate the generated dynamic workpaper.

Claim 17. The computer system of claim 10, wherein edits made to a generated workpaper are used to dynamically update other sections of the generated workpaper.

Claim 18. The computer system of claim 10, wherein the generated workpaper includes functionality enabling a user to access a web-based research system by selecting a hyperlink embedded within either the generated workpaper or the related tips.

Claim 19. A computer network for distributing content pursuant to an audit-based process, comprising:

a memory;

a communication device operatively coupled to the memory to receive annotated documents containing industry-specific content authored by experts in the field of audit-based processes; and

at least one processor, operatively coupled to the communications device for decomposing the annotated documents into individual content elements for inclusion in a content library database, distributing related collections of said content elements via content packages, and merging said content elements into an end user's content library database,

wherein the at least one processor generate a dynamic workpaper from the individual content elements in the content library database, in accordance with at least one predetermined rule, wherein the generated workpaper is also dynamically updated in response to (i) changes to user-supplied data or (ii) receipt of subsequent versions of the associated content elements.

Claim 20. The computer network of claim 19, wherein the at least one processor is configured to dynamically update the generated dynamic workpaper to reflect new or amended predetermined rules.

Claim 21. The computer network of claim 19, wherein the generated dynamic workpaper comprises: (i) text; (ii) a chart; (iii) a table; (iv) a graphic image; or (v) combinations thereof.

Claim 22. The computer network of claim 19, wherein the at least one processor is configured to provide drilldown functionality for enabling a user to view a source workpaper for a specified data value that has flowed into the generated dynamic workpaper.

Claim 22. The computer network of claim 19, wherein the at least one processor is configured to enable tip functionality to provide a user with additional guidance based on the status and data associated with the generated workpaper

Claim 23. The computer system of claim 22, wherein the tip functionality is triggered by selecting an icon embedded within the generated workpaper to provide information related to one or more topics chosen from a group consisting of: (i) practice points; (ii) related workpapers; (iii) resources; (iv) examples; (v) user assistance; and (vi) combinations thereof.

Claim 24. The computer system of claim 22, wherein edits made to a generated workpaper are used to dynamically update other sections of the generated workpaper.
