Effective Audit Committees in the Ever Changing Marketplace

April 2014

More than ever, there is a prevailing belief that effective audit committees are essential to the development and maintenance of efficient and effective capital markets. To that end, BDO continues the tradition of assisting those charged with governance (including audit committees, boards of directors and financial executives).

While geared primarily toward audit committees of public entities, much of the content included within is applicable to those charged with governance of private entities as well. Where appropriate, we have provided additional guidance/considerations specifically for private entities throughout this publication.
