IAASB Future Strategy & Work Plan Consultation now open

Feb 08, 2019
The evolving environment in which the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) operates demands a strategy that reflects, among others, changing technology; a dynamic small- and medium-sized entity landscape; and emerging reporting needs. This is global stakeholders’ opportunity to shape the board’s strategy by commenting on the proposed draft.

In the Proposed Strategy for 2020–2023 and Work Plan for 2020–2021, the IAASB puts forth a way forward that it believes meets stakeholders’ evolving needs, and is in the public interest. Enhancing our processes, including using technology and appropriate resourcing, are included in the strategy and are crucial to success. These enhancements will also maximize the impact of our activities, thereby enabling more timely responses to global trends and needs.

The Work Plan highlights the board’s commitment to completing significant projects currently underway, while balancing the needs of different stakeholders.

Feedback on this consultation and on the IAASB’s strategic direction is requested by June 4, 2019 from all interested stakeholders.
