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 ( is self-supporting and entirely funded by member dues.
