Mar 14, 2019

On March 14, 2019, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) published the "2019 Staff Inspection Outlook for Audit Committees". The Board’s new strategic plan anticipated enhanced external engagement and more proactive communication with stakeholders, including audit committees, to inform them about the PCAOB’s core activities—including inspections—and to maintain an ongoing dialogue with them.

This Audit Committee Outlook provides an overview of what audit committees should expect from the PCAOB’s 2019 inspections as a supplement to the 2019 Inspections Outlook issued in December 2018.

Review the 2019 Staff Inspection Outlook for Audit Committees on the PCAOB's website.
