IFAC's International Accounting Education Standards Board has published two documents: Proposed new guidance outlining the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare professional accountants to perform competently in one or more information technology roles.

Those roles could include:

  • Manager of information systems, such as a knowledge manager or data center manager; and
  • Designer of business systems, alone or as part of team, such as a knowledge engineer, external advisor or consultant.
The proposal is in the form of an exposure draft entitled Information Technology for Professional Accountants. Click for Press Release (PDF 84k)
