Dickinson, Richard H. - Saratoga Springs, NY

Under the automatic disciplinary provisions of the Institute’s bylaws, Mr. Dickinson’s AICPA membership was terminated, effective March 12, 2012, as a result of the Consent Order that he entered into with the New York State Board for Public Accountancy, whereby Mr. Dickinson’s license to practice was partially suspended in the area of audit or attest engagements performed under Government Auditing Standards, until he completes forty hours of CPE in Government Auditing Standards and that upon acceptance by the Board of his completion of the CPE, his license would be reinstated and he would be placed on probation for a period of two-years. This decision was based on Mr. Dickinson’s professional misconduct for failing to follow proper audit procedures in the audit of the financial statements of two entities, the results of which were submitted to a federal agency.
