    • Is your auditor at risk of violating quality control standards, such as the issues identified through the PCAOB's Inspections and the AICPA's Peer Review Program?
    • Does your auditor provide value-added services, such as meaningful financial analysis, useful governance education and competitive intelligence?
  • Bonus Content - Rate Your Auditor Scorecard! This course includes a unique scorecard to rate your financial statement auditor's performance in many critical areas, such as:
    • Applying best practices for balancing quality and efficiency for the most risk-based audit approach possible.
