OMG, the PCAOB Is Actually Holding an Open Meeting!

I hope everyone at the PCAOB remembers what to do during an open meeting. It’s been a while.

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, November 19, at 10 a.m. ET, to consider the adoption of the PCAOB budget for the 2020 fiscal year and the 2019-2023 strategic plan.

The budget is the foundation for the 2020 accounting support fee assessments. If approved by the Board, the budget will be submitted to the SEC for approval, which has scheduled a meeting to consider it on December 18. The strategic plan guides the PCAOB’s use of resources funded by the budget.

The meeting is open to the public and will take place in the PCAOB meeting room at 1666 K Street NW, Washington, DC. It will be streamed live on the PCAOB website and a recording will be available afterward.
