AICPA announces Center Focused on Public Company Audit quality.
To better address the issues surrounding public company audits, the
AICPA has established the Center for Audit Quality. Created by the AICPA
and the leading public company auditing firms, the CAQ is an expansion
and replacement of the AICPA's previous Center for Public Company
Audit Firms. The CAQ aims to foster confidence in the audit process and
aid investors and the capital markets by advancing constructive
suggestions for change rooted in the profession's core values of
integrity, objectivity, honesty and trust. As an autonomous organization
affiliated with the AICPA, the CAQ is governed by a board consisting of
AICPA President and CEO Barry Melancon, leaders from public company
auditing firms and the investor and issuer communities. The CAQ
(www.thecaq.org) is self-supporting and entirely funded by member dues.
