AICPA Governmental Audit Quality Center

Maxwell Locke & Ritter is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Governmental Audit Quality Center. The Center is a voluntary membership center for CPA firms that perform governmental audits, including all audits and attestation engagements performed under Government Auditing Standards and OMB Circular A–133 of federal, state, or local governments; not-for-profit organizations (NPO); and certain for-profit organizations that receive federal assistance. The AICPA established the Center to help CPAs perform quality audits by providing resources and guidance to help them navigate the increased complexity of the federal rules and regulations underlying governmental auditing. As a member of the Governmental Audit Quality Center, we have made a commitment to adhere to Center membership requirements that are designed to introduce additional quality control features to our practice.
