The Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has released a publication 'The Role of Auditors in Company-Prepared Information: Present and Future'.

The report provides a foundational understanding of the current role of auditors in various types of company-prepared and publicly disclosed information and is intended to help investors and audit committees understand how auditors are positioned to help fill existing gaps in enhancing the reliability of decision-useful information. It argues that while today the role of auditors is largely limited to the audit of financial statements, changing business models and investor demand lead to companies increasingly providing information outside the financial statements. The report argues that auditors are poised to meet stakeholders’ needs in enhancing confidence in these other types of company-prepared information, which include non-GAAP financial measures, environmental, social, and governance information, cybersecurity reporting, and other communications about value-creation outside of financial statements.

For more information, see the press release and publication on the CAQ website.
