AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center
GBQ is a member of the AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center. The Center was established to promote the quality of employee benefit plan audits. Membership to the Center is voluntary but to be eligible to become a member of the Center certain requirements must be met. Some of the requirements include sufficient training of all staff who work on employee benefit plans, additional review of employee benefit plan audits during our internal inspection and additional review of pension engagements during our peer review.
