On November 6, 2019, the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) released its 2019 Audit Committee Transparency Barometer. The Barometer tracks S&P Composite 1500 proxy disclosures to gauge transparency around audit committee oversight of the external auditor and other key financial reporting topics.

In addition to presenting statistics on disclosure trends, the Barometer offers disclosure examples to illustrate how audit committees are enhancing information for investors and others.

Review the report on the CAQ's website and a summary on the Journal of Accountancy's website.
