Smarter Audits (No. 018039CPA11), issued by the PCPS Executive Committee. Many CPA firms are finding it difficult to conduct an efficient audit while meeting professional requirements as the volume and complexity of professional standards increase. To that end, PCPS/The AICPA Alliance for CPA Firms commissioned a survey to gain information and suggestions from the experiences of other CPA firms that audit not-for-profit organizations.

Smarter Audits is a unique publication that takes the best and most topical information from the survey and presents you with information on unique challenges and opportunities -- and how to use them to your advantage, how to get the most from your tools and software, best practices for managing the client and retaining staff, proper planning, and risk assessment. In addition, get tips on how to add value to your audit engagements and see how your firm measures up to the surveyed CPA firms.
