Our ownership structure gives us full responsibility and authority to serve our clients in all matters. However, we can quickly draw upon national support from the following resources when appropriate:
We are committed to maintaining the highest quality standards of our profession. To that end, the firm is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Private Companies Practice Section, as well as its Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) and Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center (EBPAQC).
Centers such as the CAQ and the EBPAQC are firm-based, voluntary membership organizations designed to help CPAs meet the challenges of performing quality audits. By meeting the stringent membership requirements of the CAQ and the EBPAQC, the firm demonstrates our dedication to achieving audit quality in the practice of employee benefit plan audits by establishing and maintaining high levels of quality control. In addition to fostering a culture of high audit quality, our membership provides us with an additional resource for research and staff development.
We adhere to the AICPA’s Professional Standards, Code of Professional Conduct, and Bylaws. These standards and related interpretations are the basis for our system of quality control, which is designed to ensure that we:
- Have the skills and knowledge at the level required to ensure competent professional service,
- Exercise due professional care in the performance of professional services,
- Adequately plan and supervise the performance of an engagement, and
- Obtain sufficient relevant data to afford a reasonable basis for conclusions or recommendations in relations to the professional services performed.
Peer reviews are intensive reviews of a firm’s quality control system applicable to its accounting and auditing practice. Performed by CPAs from other AICPA division member firms, the review evaluates our policies and procedures and examines a sample of our engagements to determine compliance.
