GAQC Alert No. 45 

Savings on Professional Liability Insurance for GAQC Member


The AICPA Governmental Audit Quality Center is pleased to offer a new benefit to Center members in recognition of your commitment to performing quality audits. The AICPA Professional Liability Insurance Program will award a new premium credit to firms that are members of the Center.

Aon Insurance Services*, CNA**, and the AICPA have joined forces to offer firms a 5% premium credit for membership in either the GAQC or the Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center (EBPAQC). Firms who are members of both Audit Quality Centers will receive up to a 10% premium credit (maximum amount of the credits is $400 per policy).

Applications for the AICPA Professional Liability Insurance Program now include a check box for GAQC and EBPAQC members. If you are currently insured in the Program, simply check the appropriate box on your renewal application and the premium credit will be awarded at your annual renewal. New applicants who indicate that they are members of one or both of the Centers will receive the premium credit as of the policy’s effective date.
