No real surprises here, but the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board just released its Strategic Plan for the next fiscal five years. Its four key objectives are: 1) to promote investor confidence in public company audited financial statements; 2) to inform, educate and receive feedback from interested parties about the PCAOB’s oversight activities and auditing best practices; 3) to strengthen auditor oversight in the U.S. and global markets; and 4) to operate the PCAOB in a responsible and transparent manner, as a “public steward” of its resources.
