The AICPA’s Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) has issued a new ethics interpretation around Compliance Audits. The interpretation adds two new definitions and revises a third definition. In addition, several Q&As were added to provide context for the application of the independence rules for these engagements.
OMB has issued its 2022 Compliance Supplement. While originally promised in April of 2022, OMB issued it on May 12 which is much better than the previous years that were issued in August. The Compliance Supplement includes new ARPA programs that were not addressed in the 2021 Supplement so this can be very helpful to auditors wrapping up some outstanding 2021 audits. The Supplement should be used for 6/30/22 year ends and beyond.
