The increasing complexity of employee benefit plan auditing and increased focus by the DOL have resulted in significant pressure for CPAs and firms performing EBP audits. To help CPAs meet the challenge of performing quality audits in this unique and complex area, the AICPA has developed this alert to assist in identifying current sources of risk within EBP audit engagements. A targeted discussion on new developments, issues auditors may face in their current audits, as well as a look at what's in the pipeline that may affect their engagements is provided.
