    Comfort Letters & Third-Party Verifications Center for Plain English Accounting Find Out More about the PCPS Team
    CPAs are being asked to verify more and more types of information. A CPA may unintentionally violate professional standards by signing these requests so it is very important that you know what you’re being asked to certify, what the risks are and other options you may have. CPEA is the AICPA’s national A&A resource center, available exclusively to PCPS members. Through reports, alerts, webinars, and conference sessions, CPEA professional staff provide A&A support by describing “how to do” what you “need to do” in implementing the authoritative literature.  The PCPS team shares our backgrounds to provide our various frames of reference in our work with you and your firm.
