Advocacy-PCPS Technical Issues Committee
Provides news about new and proposed accounting, auditing, compilation/review and ethics standards.
What is the PCPS Technical Issues Committee (TIC)?
TIC is a committee of CPA practitioner volunteers working to represent the views of local firms and their clients in the standards-setting process.
What is TIC’s Charge?
TIC monitors the activities of the various standard setting boards (FASB, GASB, ASB) and other AICPA Senior Committees and, when appropriate, TIC submits comments and recommendations to the standard setters as the collective voice of small and medium-sized firms
TIC provides standards-setters with practical assistance as well; such as "field testing" portions of proposed guidance, providing practical examples of potential implementation difficulties and serving on standard-setting task forces.
If you have questions, local firm advocacy issues or suggestions for TIC, let us hear your voice. Kristy Illuzzi, CPA, CGMA, is the AICPA’s TIC Staff Liaison and can be reached by email. You can also volunteer to serve on the TIC Committee. More information about volunteer opportunities is available here.
