Many of the PCAOB’s systems will be unavailable over the Memorial Day weekend while the board’s data center undergoes extensive maintenance.
Systems that will be unavailable beginning at 8 p.m. Friday include:
- The public website.
- The registration, annual, and special reporting system.
- The payments system.
The system will come back online after the Memorial Day holiday. PCAOB offices are closed on Monday. The outage will prevent auditors from accessing the official PCAOB standards as published by the board over the three-day weekend.
Auditors and firms will not be in jeopardy of missing registration, reporting, or payment deadlines because PCAOB policy mandates that any item with a due date on a weekend or holiday actually is not due until the next business day, said Colleen Brennan, the director of the PCAOB’s office of public affairs.
