Archived May 2015 AICPA Peer Review Program Manual 

NEW:  PRPM to remain on Peer Review website, including Team/Review Captain Packages.

To improve audit quality, make the peer review process more efficient and address feedback, the PRPM, including Team/Review Captain Packages, will remain on the peer review website available for download to AICPA members, with some content available to the public (Standards, Interpretations, etc.) The content includes:

Engagement checklists,
Supplemental checklists,
Team/Review Captain Package zip files, and
Practice Management Toolkits


These materials will also be maintained on the AICPA's Online Professional Library (OPL) for subscribers. Those subscribers will have ability to:

Search the PRPM,
Add bookmarks and research notes, and
Link to references in guidance within their other OPL subscriptions


Single user and discounted multi-user subscriptions are available for purchase. Multi-user subscriptions are based on the number of concurrent users, i.e. how many firm employees will need access to OPL during the same time frame. For further information, see here, under "multi-user subscription." 


Both resources will be kept up to-date. For updates, continue to monitor Reviewer Alerts. Also see Q&A on PRPM in OPL
