AICPA, AAA, IAASB launch research project to better understand users' perceptions of auditor's report on financial statements.
A "Request for Proposal" was issued last month soliciting academic research to identify and provide information about such perceptions. The RFP can be downloaded from the IAASB home page at www.iaasb.org.
The AICPA's Auditing Standards Board has a current project to consider whether the auditor's report should be revised. The IAASB recently completed a project in this regard. The new research findings will provide important information that can be used as a basis for any future revisions to the auditor's report.
Research proposals must be submitted by Oct. 2, 2006, to Sharon Walker, Technical Manager, Audit and Attest Standards, AICPA, 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036-8775. The ASB and IAASB will fund between $10,000 and $20,000 for each project. Researchers are required to submit a summary of results to the ASB and IAASB by Oct. 1, 2007, with a more detailed report to be provided to the boards by Jan. 7, 2008. The summary should be tailored toward practitioners, rather than readers of an academic journal. Researchers will have the right to publish the research, as long as the boards are given appropriate credit for research support provided.
