Bigalke, Robin L. of Gulfport, FL

Under the automatic disciplinary provisions of the Institute’s bylaws, Ms. Bigalke’s AICPA membership was suspended for three years, effective December 10, 2015, in connection with the disciplinary action taken by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Specifically, through an “Offer of Settlement”, and without admitting or denying the charges, the SEC denied Ms. Bigalke the privilege of appearing or practicing before the Commission as an accountant with the right to apply for reinstatement after three years from the effective date of the SEC’s Order for falsifying and backdating audit documents in an attempt to hide improprieties and documentation deficiencies at an audit firm.
