    Enhancing Audit Quality 

    The AICPA launched the Enhancing Audit Quality (EAQ) initiative in May 2014 to consider auditing of private entities through multiple touch points, especially where quality issues have emerged.

    On May 14, 2015, the AICPA released an EAQ Six Point Plan, which summarizes how the AICPA is moving forward on the feedback received on the EAQ Discussion Paper.

    Feedback is due June 15, 2015 on the concept paper for Phase 2 of EAQ, titled "Evolving the CPA Profession’s Peer Review Program for the Future: A provocative vision of what practice monitoring could become." Please read the paper and provide your input and feedback by June 15, 2015.

    Access more information on the thought-provoking concept here.

    See additional EAQ resources.

    Online MFC Form 

    We have developed online Matter for Further Consideration (MFC) and Disposition of Matter for Further Consideration (DMFC) forms and have been testing their functionality since the fall of 2012.

    Peer reviewers are required to use the online MFC and DMFC forms for reviews of all AICPA member firms. The online form will not be used for reviews of non-AICPA member firms until late 2014.

    Training sessions for peer reviewers and enrolled firms on the online forms can be found here.

    To access detailed step-by-step instructions, frequently asked questions or troubleshooting tips, go to the Online MFC Form webpage.

    National Peer Review Committee (NPRC)

    Firms are required to have their peer review administered by the NPRC if they are required to be registered with and inspected by the PCAOB or if they perform audits of non-SEC issuers pursuant to the standards of the PCAOB.

    If your firm is not required to have its review administered by the National PRC, but it chooses to do so, please notify your current administering entity. Your firm would be subject to the current NPRC administrative fee structure for reviews due after July 31, 2010 (or the future NPRC administrative fee structure if your review will commence on or after August 1, 2013).

    For more information, go to the NPRC page.
