Transparency is all well and good in theory, but in practice here is how it works:
First the auditors want to know if we have the required device to measure time, so we show them that we have a watch:
but then the auditors tell us we have to have more detail, so we show them that the watch face has numbers and a minute and an hour hand,
then they tell us it has to have even more accuracy, so we add a second hand,
and then they want to know how it is that we can know that the watch is really reliable down to the second, so we remove the face plate to provide tranasparency to all the complex gearing inside,
– and then they hit us with a significant deficiency because they can’t tell what time it is.
