What has the biggest impact on single audit quality? This past year, the AICPA Peer Review Program conducted a study of single audit engagements and identified three factors that strongly correlated to quality performance. The study also provided insights into the most common areas of non-conformity in single audits and uncovered misconceptions that are creating challenges for practitioners. Learn more about the study results and the actions your firm can take in this session.

Learning Objectives:
