If You’re Not Doing Anything Next Monday, Hang With the PCAOB As They Hammer Out Their Budget

I was totally going to go but, um, I have to wash my cat's hair that day:

PCAOB to Consider 2014 Budget and Strategic Plan

Washington, DC, Nov. 19, 2013

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board has scheduled an Open Meeting for Monday, Nov. 25, at 3 p.m., to consider adoption of the PCAOB budget for the 2014 fiscal year and the related strategic plan.

Section 109(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires the PCAOB to establish a budget for each fiscal year no later than one month prior to the commencement of that fiscal year. The PCAOB fiscal year is the calendar year. If approved by the Board, the budget will be submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission for approval, as required by Section 109(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

The budget will form the foundation for the PCAOB 2014 accounting support fee assessments.

Additionally, the SEC's rule on the PCAOB budget requires the PCAOB to maintain a strategic plan. If the budget and strategic plan are approved by the Board, the strategic plan will guide the Board's use of resources funded by the 2014 budget.

The meeting is open to the public and will take place in the PCAOB meeting room at 1666 K St. NW, Washington, DC. It will be webcast via a link on the PCAOB website, and available via podcast later in the day.
