Peer review has been the cornerstone of the accounting profession’s self-regulatory program since 1977. Designed to assure the public that CPAs practice in firms that provide services of the highest quality, peer review is a periodic outside review of a firm’s quality control system in accounting and auditing. It is also known as a practice monitoring program.
Peer review is a statutory requirement for Pennsylvania firms, and it is also a condition of membership in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Most firms are required to have a peer review once every three years.
John E. McGovern & Associates, P.C. has successfully completed all four of its peer reviews since its inception and is a proud member of both the American and Pennsylvania Institutes of Certified Public Accountants.
