The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has released an online survey as the first step in its strategic review process for the period 2015-2019.

The IAASB is considering a strategy period of five years, rather than its past practice of three years. The IAASB believes that extending its strategy period will "enable a better understanding by stakeholders of its medium-to-longer term priorities, and provide a suitable context for purposes of its decisions on specific initiatives".

The survey is structured in three sections:

  • Section I seeks information about the capacity in which respondents are responding to the questionnaire
  • Section II describes the anticipated stage of completion of current IAASB projects by the beginning of 2015
  • Section III includes the specific questions asked of respondents.

The survey is open for comment until 7 May 2013 and the responses will be used in the development of a formal consultation paper on the IAASB's strategy and work program, which is expected to be issued in late 2013.
