CAQ and AAA call for research proposals

The Centre for Audit Quality (CAQ) and the American Accounting Association (AAA) called for research proposals as part of their initiative which connects academics with audit practitioners.

AAA auditing section president Rick Hatfield said: “The Access to Audit Personnel program has been an invaluable tool to connect scholars with audit personnel. The program alleviates the first hurdle of quality academic field work by connecting researchers with qualified participants from multiple audit firms.”

Applicants are required to submit a proposal with the outline of their theory and hypothesis as well as data collection method they would use during their experiment. A committee of senior academics and audit partners will review the proposals. Since its launch in 2012, the Access to Audit Personnel program has granted access to 2,500 audit participants.

The deadline for submission of proposal is 1 February 2018.
