Peer Review


The AICPA published online an article on members’ perceptions of its peer review program and other issues being studied by the Peer Review Task Force—for example, whether review results should be confidential ( www.aicpa.org/transparency/member_perceptions.htm ). The Institute encourages CPAs in public practice or business and industry to discuss the role peer review has played in their firm’s or business’s development, hiring practices or quality control by sending an e-mail message to previewstories@aicpa.org .
